There are many intriguing paintings depicting ancient extraterrestrial visitations. Many of these beautiful paintings were made during the Renaissance period.
Some of them were created in medieval times while others are more recent. What they all do have in common is that they offer an exclusive view of stunning alien flying craft that people of that time witnessed over the skies.
In this article, we have selected some of the most astonishing paintings we would like to share with MessageToEagle’s readers.
Miracle of the Snow – 1432 – by Masolino Da Panicale
The “Miracle of the Snow” was painted by Masolino da Panicale for the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome. It has since been removed and can now be seen in the National Gallery of Capodimonte, Naples. The painting is based on a legend from the year 352.
Pope Liberius and Giovanni, a rich Roman gentleman, dreamed of Mother Mary asking them to build a church devoted to her on the Esquilino hill, one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome. The virgin also told them that at the place chosen to build the church it was going to snow. In the dream, Virgin Mary said it would snow in the location where the church is to be constructed.
According to the legend, it snowed in an exact square where claimed and the first church in honor of Mother Mary was built in place.
Generally, snow is extremely rare in Rome, even in the coldest seasons, so the following morning when a rectangle of snow was discovered on the Esquilino hill during the hottest month of the Roman Summer, it was regarded as miraculous.
People crowded to see the patch of snow, which persisted despite the heat.
As soon as the plot for the building had been staked out, the snow melted, and the first major church in Rome in honor of Mary was erected in its place.
In addition, the Miracle of the Snow legend is also linked to a reported event in 1954 over Florence Italy, when several flying discs left a cotton-like discharge as they flew by.
It can be easily noticed that the clouds in Panicale’s painting are by no means any ordinary clouds. If you look closer, you will notice they are all almost the same size and shape. The depicted “clouds” do not resemble any commonly found in other paintings during the same period. So, what are these unidentified flying objects?
Interestingly, the Miracle of the Snow legend is also linked to a reported event in 1954 over Florence Italy, when several flying discs left a cotton-like discharge as they flew by. It is only logical to assume that the “clouds” are in fact ancient ufos.
Nuremberg – 1561
Colored woodprint by Samuel Coccius, Basel, Switzerland, (1566) on the 1561 celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg.
The Nuremberg incident is a classical ancient UFO case. The event was documented in 1561 by Hans Glaser and reported in the Nuremberg Gazette. It was mass UFO sighting. People witnessed how hundreds of crosses, globes and tubes were fighting each other above the city. Some of the objects were reported to disappear into the Sun, and others into a thick cloud of smoke after crashing into the ground. After the battle, a large black, spear-like object after the battle suddenly appeared.
Five years later in 1566, citizens of Basel Switzerland witnessed a similar spectacle involving several black orbs engaged in battle filling the sky above.
Celestial phenomenon over the German city of Nuremberg on April 14, 1561 as printed in an illustrated news notice in the same month.
The text of the broadsheet can be translated as giving the following description of the event:
“In the morning of April 14, 1561, at daybreak, between 4 and 5 a.m., a dreadful apparition occurred on the sun, and then this was seen in Nuremberg in the city, before the gates and in the country – by many men and women.
At first there appeared in the middle of the sun two blood-red semi-circular arcs, just like the moon in its last quarter. And in the sun, above and below and on both sides, the color was blood, there stood around ball of partly dull, partly black ferrous color.
Likewise there stood on both sides and as a torus about the sun such blood-red ones and other balls in large number, about three in a line and four in a square, also some alone. In between these globes there were visible a few blood-red crosses, between which there were blood-red strips, becoming thicker to the rear and in the front malleable like the rods of reed-grass, which were intermingled, among them two big rods, one on the right, the other to the left, and within the small and big rods there were three, also four and more globes.
These all started to fight among themselves, so that the globes, which were first in the sun, flew out to the ones standing on both sides, thereafter, the globes standing outside the sun, in the small and large rods, flew into the sun. Besides the globes flew back and forth among themselves and fought vehemently with each other for over an hour. And when the conflict in and again out of the sun was most intense, they became fatigued to such an extent that they all, as said above, fell from the sun down upon the earth ‘as if they all burned’ and they then wasted away on the earth with immense smoke.
After all this there was something like a black spear, very long and thick, sighted; the shaft pointed to the east, the point pointed west. Whatever such signs mean, God alone knows. Although we have seen, shortly one after another, many kinds of signs on the heaven, which are sent to us by the almighty God, to bring us to repentance, we still are, unfortunately, so ungrateful that we despise such high signs and miracles of God. Or we speak of them with ridicule and discard them to the wind, in order that God may send us a frightening punishment on account of our ungratefulness. After all, the God-fearing will by no means discard these signs, but will take it to heart as a warning of their merciful Father in heaven, will mend their lives and faithfully beg God that He may avert His wrath, including the well-deserved punishment, on us, so that we may temporarily here and perpetually there, live as his children. For it, may God grant us his help, Amen? By Hanns Glaser, letter-painter of Nurnberg.”
Annunciation with Saint Emidius – 1486 by Carlo Crivelli
The painting was especially created for the Marches town of Ascoli. In 1482 Francesco Sforza was ousted from Ascoli, and the city was granted partial self-government by Pope Sixtus IV, of Sistine chapel fame.
On Carlo Crivelli’s painting we can see a ray of light emanating from a disc shaped cloud formation in the sky. The object’s beam is directed through an opening in a building to the dove and Mother Mary.
Visoki Decani Monestary – 1350
Located in the Serbian province of Kosovo, the beautiful Visoki Decani Monastery hangs an intriguing painting on one of its walls. The painting depicts the crucifixion of Christ and in each top corner is what appears to be a flying craft with a human figure inside.
The Madonna with Saint Giovannino by Domenico Ghirlandaio
Madonna with Saint Giovannino was paiting around the 15th century. In the top right of the corner is a mysterious object that looks like a UFO. A man standing with a dog is observing the flying craft.
Baptism of Christ – 1710 – by Aert De Gelder
De Gelder was one of Rembrandt’s pupils who lived in Amsterdam, from 1661 to 1663. He was one of the most talented and devoted of Rembrandt’s students and a highly acclaimed master painter. The Baptism of Christ depicts the scene from the Bible where John the Baptist is baptizing Jesus in the river Jordan. This scene has been illustrated by many artists. However, this scene is particularly interesting because of the flying saucer hovering over the scene with beams of light shining down and illuminating the event. The Bible cites the Baptism of Jesus in this manner.
