I thought this is a great article that shows that UFOs have been in art for ages. Take a look at these works – pretty amazing. UFOs have been around for thousands of years.
This painting is called “The Madonna with Saint Giovannino”. It was painted in the 15th century by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449-1494) and hangs as part of the Loeser collection in the Palazzo Vecchio. Above Mary’s (left) shoulder is a disk shaped object. Below is a blow up of this section and a man and his dog can clearly be seen looking up at the object.
These two objects are from part of a fresco entitled “The Crucifixion” and was painted in 1350. They are located above the altar at the Visoki Decani Monestary in Kosovo, Yugoslavia.
These two tapestries were created in the 14th century. Both depict the life of Mary. Hat shaped objects can be clearly seen in both tapestries. The one above was created in 1330. The below is entitled “The Magnificent”. Both are located at the french basillica Notre-Dame in Beaune, Burgandy.
The above picture depicts Jesus and Mary on what appear to be lenticular clouds. The painting is entitled “The Miracle of the Snow” and was painted by Masolino Da Panicale (1383-1440) and hangs at the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Florence, Italy.

The above painting is by Carlo Crivelli (1430-1495) and is called “The Annunciation with Saint Emidius” (1486) and hangs in the National Gallery, London. A disk shaped object is shining a pencil beam of light down onto the crown of Mary’s head. A Blow up of the object is below.

This image is by flemish artist Aert De Gelder and is entitled “The Baptism of Christ” It was painted in 1710 and hangs in the Fitzwilliam Musuem, Cambridge. A disk shaped object is shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus.
The above illustration depicts a sighting that occurred at 9.45pm on the evening of 18th August 1783 when four witnesses on the terrace of Windsor Castle observed a luminous object in the skies of the Home Counties of England. The sighting was recorded the following year in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. According to this report, witnesses observed an “oblong cloud moving more or less parallel to the horizon. Under this cloud could be seen a luminous object which soon became spherical, brilliantly lit, which came to a halt; This strange sphere seemed at first to be pale blue in colour but then its luminosity increased and soon it set off again towards the east. Then the object changed direction and moved parallel to the horizon before disappearing to the south-east ; the light it gave out was prodigious; it lit us everything on the ground.” The image was captured in this by Thomas Sandby (a founder of the Royal Academy) and his brother Paul, both of whom witnessed the event.
These are images above and below are from Kimberley, Australia. They are Australian Aborigine cave paintings, possibly 5,000 years old. It is believed they represent ET beings.
This is an illustration entitled “The Birth of Christ” from a 12th century Greek manuscript “The Book of the Evangelists”. If you look to the right of the picture there two figures looking up at a semi-circular object with figures inside. The object appears to be shining a beam of light down onto the birth. One of the pair of observers is shielding his eyes, possibly the artist was trying to convey the brightness of the object.
The above image comes from an ancient eastern text Prajnâpârâmita – Suna. In the enlargement you can see two objects that look like hats, but why are they floating in mid air? Also one of them appears to have portholes on it.
