Artwork has been created by human beings for thousands of years. Long before written language, drawings were used to chronicle history. One particularly intriguing aspect of ufology is a repeated presence of bizarre crafts and strange creatures throughout numerous depictions. Ancient civilizations with no contact or communication amongst themselves often illustrated eerily similar subjects: UFOs and extraterrestrials. Did our ancestors witness physical phenomena which they deemed worthy of documenting for future generations? That conclusion is for the observer to decide.
