Ancient Artists Depicted UFOs In Many Famous Tapestries - Is This More Proof Of Their Existence?

Did ancient artists leave us with clear evidence of extraterrestrial encounters during their lifetime? Many famous artworks from the ancient times appear to clearly show what we would today describe as UFOs.

Artwork is often considered as a record of history, science, and culture, for thousands of years humans have trusted art as evidence and fact about what the artist has seen.

Since the beginning of the human race, people have always reproduced celestial events, starting with ancient rock carvings and then moving onto canvas, often pointing us towards new discoveries that would not have even been considered if it wasn't for the carvings, drawings, paintings, and tapestries.

There have been many ongoing debates about ancient rock carvings that appear to show strange objects in the sky and even what would appear to us, in modern day thoughts, to be extraterrestrial entities, however, little has been discussed about ancient tapestries from the medieval period, and when it has been brought up, it is frequently dismissed because it challenges the orthodox perspective.

Take A Look At Some Of The Medieval Tapestries

In eastern France, Cote d'Or Department, in the small town of Beaune, there is the Notre Dame Basilica. The original building was built around 1120-1149. Within the library of this spectacular building there are a set of tapestries from from the 15th to the 18th centuries.

It is almost impossible to miss the fact, that in both of these tapestries you can clearly see an unidentified flying object in the sky,

Not only do both pieces appear to show a UFO, they are both depicted in what is classed as a typical unidentified flying object as it is frequently described in modern day encounters and sightings. The "Magnificat" was made in 1330, and even here the object is similar to that of the most typically discussed style of "flying saucer."

Some argue today that the pictures do not depict UFOs and claim that they are priest hats, but even the strongest of sceptics has to surely ask themselves, why would they have added floating priest hats in the sky?

This surely makes it reasonable to question as to whether personal sightings of the artists or popular stories of the historical period could have influenced the inclusion of these objects in such a sacred piece of artwork.

There are examples of UFOs or flying saucers in other artworks that simply cannot be described as "priest hats" - given they do not fly in "religious skies". A perfect example of this is the tapestry "Summer Triumph," depicting allegoric and symbolic images of the season.

This tapestry was part of a series that originally depicted all four season, it is not currently known if any of the other tapestries have survived. This particular tapestry is kept at the Bayerisches National Museum in Munich, Germany, which unfortunately has very little background information to go with it.

All we really know is that it was brought to the museum in 1971 by an art dealer, there is no information about where it was created, the designer, or the reason behind its production. In the border of it, the date 1538 is woven in, on both the left and ride sides of the tapestry. In the top border there is an inscription in old Latin that reads "REX GOSCI SIVE GUTSCMIN." This translates as "King Gosci of Gutscmin." Is this telling us who ordered the tapestry to be produced? No one really knows.

As like many other tapestries, in the background, high into the sky, there are black discs or UFOs hovering above.

It is worth mentioning that art depicting strange or unusual images within is not usually considered with much curiosity by the "experts" and they appear to prefer to ignore what they cannot explain logically.

The Fire In The Sky Depicted In The Tapestry Of The Two Crusaders

Another fascinating example of ancient witnesses of unknown phenomena is that which was written about the images of the two crusaders in the "Annales Laurissenses" books that were produced at the start of the 8th century.

In 776, during one of the many raids of the Saxons in Frank territory, an unexplained event occurred. When Charlemagne (or Charles the Great) King of the Franks, was resting from battle and devoting himself to the cause of the Holy Church, the Saxons invaded the Franks with a great army.

When they reached the chapel at Frisdilar, which was founded by Saint Bonifacio, a preacher who had predicted that the chapel would never be burned. The invading Saxons surrounded the chapel and advanced inside, where they started to set it alight. All of a sudden, two men dressed in bright white clothing appeared in the sky. They were witnessed by the Christians who had taken refuge inside the castle and also by the pagans outside.

it was claimed that the two men in the sky protected the chapel from being burned, the pagans could not set fire to it, neither on the outside or the inside, the attackers were so terrified by this encounter that they ran away, even though no one was chasing them.

It is said that one crusader remained and did not flee with the rest of them, he was found dead, in flames, in front of the chapel. His corpse was found on his knees and elbows, with his hands covering his mouth, giving the impression he had died from asphyxia.

The fire was there and was witnessed by many, it caused no damage to the chapel but it certainly killed the remaining crusader. This event could be put down to numerous things, it could also be classed as irrelevant if it wasn't followed up by another strange event shortly after.

The year was 776, and the next event took place during the siege of Sigiburg castle. The Saxons had the Franks surrounded, but this time the French army had snuck out and attacked the Saxons from behind. The Saxons were completely unprotected from the back as all their troops were attacking the front of the castle. During the violent battle, something appeared in the sky.

The witnesses described what they saw as two flaming shields, one after another. The objects appeared to hover over the top of the church. The Saxons, who were already disorientated from the the attack from behind, now believed that the Franks were protected by whatever was in the sky, this terrified them so much that they all fled.

For this particular event, not only is there text which tells the story, there is an illustration depicting two crusaders. The first illustration clearly shows the crusader holding his arms up and showing a sphere like object in the sky.

When looking at the other image (above, right), the crusader with the crown on his head on the horse is clearly pointing at an object in the sky, that appears to have a domed roof with what could be described as portholes around it, another example of what we would now refer to in modern day times as a UFO.

Does ancient tapestry provide even more evidence to the fact that extraterrestrial lifeforms have been visiting earth since ancient times? We will let you be the judge of that. Now you have read this article, make sure you read about the untold Australian UFO incident.
