20 Historical Paintings That Conspiracy Lovers Can’t Get Enough Of

Between the moon landing in 1969 and the growth of the science fiction genre, most would likely peg the 20th century as the origin of humanity’s interest in extraterrestrial life. Think about it: is there anything more “modern” sounding than the idea of aliens?

In actuality, this may not be the case. There are a number of historical paintings that some claim feature alien contact —we’re talking about UFOs, people! Here are 20 works of art — painted centuries before we ever went to space — that are so out of this world they might be proof of alien existence!

1. St. John the Baptist (1513 – 1516): Leonardo Da Vinci is known for leaving hidden codes in his work. Well, if you join two mirror images of this painting, the face of an alien figure can be seen. Was he trying to send us a message?

2. “Charama, India, Cave Paintings” (8,000 B.C.): Archaeologists have discovered alien-like paintings inside an Indian cave. Scientists have gone straight to NASA to investigate whether or not these paintings prove aliens visited our planet 10,000 years ago.

3. “Two Dutch Ships” (unknown): Although the artist and era of this painting are unknown, it can be seen that two Dutch ships are sailing towards floating orbs in the sky. Upon further inspection, there appear to be faces inside the orbs suggesting that this is a UFO sighting.

4. UFO sighting outside Windsor Castle (1783): This painting depicts Thomas Sandby’s account of a pale blue object entering the night sky from beyond. He recounted that the glowing orb came to a halt and moved directions at one point during the encounter.

5. Mayan carving (1st Century): Carved in stone, there is a man worshiping or surrendering to an alien-type figure hovering above. Some suggest the UFO carving is really just a representation of an ancient Mayan god, but the extraterrestrial reference is strong. 

6. The Annunciation With Saint Emidus (1486): Painted by Carlo Crivelli, this work depicts the Virgin Mary just before she learns she is going to give birth to Jesus Christ. The light beaming down on her is either the halo of the Lord… or it’s a UFO and a sign that Mary was abducted, depending on who you ask.

7. The Crucifixion Of Christ (1350): This painting, which hangs above the Visoki Decani Monastery in Kosovo, depicts the crucifixion of Christ. Supposedly, the objects in the upper corners are some sort of spacecraft!

8. The Baptism Of Christ (1710): Showing the baptism of Jesus, this painting by Aert de Gelder features four separate beams of light. Some believe this demonstrates that the disc in the sky is actually a UFO.

9. The Madonna With Saint Giovannino (late 1400s): Domenico Ghirlandaio painted an object over the Madonna’s left believed by some to be a UFO. A man is staring at it in the distance and a dog seems to be barking at it as well.

10. Triumph Of Summer Tapestry (1538): This tapestry was created in Bruges, Belgium, and features depictions of three strange objects in the sky. They don’t seem to match any known religious symbols, and the scene on the tapestry is of a ruler’s rise to power.

11. La Tebaide (mid-1400s): This painting shows a number of scenes from monastic life in the 15th century, as well as the Crucifixion. Some point to the red disc at the bottom as a sign of something alien, but debunkers say it’s nothing but the hat style commonly worn by cardinals at the time.

12. The Miracle Of The Snow (1428-1432): Painted by Masolino da Panicale, it evidently shows a snowfall that happened on a hot August day in Italy. Many believe the clouds might really be representative of something far more otherworldly.

13. “Israel, Put Your Hope In The Lord” Painting (circa 1600s): Residing now in the Church of the Dominican Monastery in Sighisoara, Romania, this eerie painting shows a church on fire. Above it appears to be some sort of UFO wreaking havoc.

14. Glorification Of The Eucharist (early 1600s): Painted by Ventura Salimbeni, it’s hard not to notice the globe in the middle of the work. Some say it’s evidence of time travel, while experts suggest it’s a “creation globe,” and the antennas are actually wands used by God and Jesus.

15. The Crucifixion Of Christ (circa 1600s): Found in the Svetishoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia, this painting apparently shows two flying objects on either side of Christ during the Crucifixion. Some believe this is proof that Jesus was some form of human-alien hybrid.

16. Saint Wolfgang and the Devil (circa 1475): This piece by Michael Pacher shows Saint Wolfgang himself getting help from some devilish alien creature to build his church.

17. Egyptian Pictograph (400 B.C.): This pictograph appears to show a male Egyptian offering a live bird to a cloaked alien figure of some sort. Potentially a peace offering after unwanted aliens invaded earth?

18. “Une No Chiri” (1803): Published in a book in the 19th century, this illustration depicts a real-life artifact that was found at Haratonohama by Japanese sailors. According to the explanation on the drawing, the outside was made of iron and glass.

19. Foppa Adorazione (1478): This painting has a hidden message lurking in the back. A man can be seen standing on the hill looking up at a glowing orb. Some argue that this divine painting depicts belief of extraterrestrial life.

Vincenzo Foppa

20. Mona Lisa (1503) Another example of Leonardo da Vinci leaving hidden messages in his work, comes from one of his most famous paintings. If you place two mirror images of the Mona Lisa side-by-side, an alien’s face becomes clearly visible.

But there is actually much more to this classic than just Aliens. There is so much mystery surrounding Mona Lisa that historians continue to study the painting today, and after all these years she still has secrets to reveal…

In 2015, a French scientist using reflective light technology discovered a portrait of another woman hiding beneath the painting we see now. The underlying portrait is believed to be Da Vinci’s first draft of the famous painting, but it’s difficult to confirm if that belief is true or not. And Mona Lisa isn’t the only one holding secrets…

Jan van Eyck, the Netherlandish painter, created the famous Arnolfini Portraitin 1434. The painting depicts Giovanni di Nicolao Arnolfini, an Italian merchant, and his wife, Constanza Trenta. While the renowned work is impressive in itself, there’s more to the painting than meets the eye…

Take a closer look, you’ll see a mirror centered in the background of the painting. Reflected in the mirror are two other figures who appear to be looking at the Arnolfini’s. Based on our logic of mirrors, one of the figures is presumed to be the artist, Van Eyck, subtly eternalizing himself in the portrait.

We can’t talk about art without bringing up the chiseled bod of David. Arguably one of the greatest sculptures of all time, Michelangelo’s statue of David stands 17 feet tall. Seriously, we have to admit, David doesn’t really have a bad angle going for him. But looking up at David does distort one thing that might change the way you consider the work.

David is positioned in a heroic manner. Due to its size, when we admire the statue we are forced to look up at him. His body is anatomical perfection, and, paired with his confident stance, David is often thought to be sculpted as “hero.” Looking at David at eye level reveals a different story. His expression shows concern and fear, which makes sense after all given he is about to engage in a battle with Goliath!

This one is a touch macabre. In 1533, Hans Holbein the Younger painted The Ambassadors. The work showcases two rich ambassadors, seemingly healthy and in their prime, surrounded with their fine material goods. While the portrait is strikingly rich in color, the hues defy the underlying message of the work, which is far from vivifying.

Looming at the feet of the ambassadors is an anamorphic perspective of a skull. The skull, with its placement and perspective, seems so stark that it feels like it doesn’t belong in the painting.

This piece was intended to hang in a stairwell so, at the angle of ascension, the skull would jump right out at you. The skull was to serve as a memento mori, which translates to, “remember you will die.” So much for a welcome mat, huh?

Despite his name, Pieter Bruegel the Elder is not a wizard. Unfortunately. What he is though, is one of the most notable artists of the Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting. In 1559, he created the Netherlandish Proverbs. It may look more like a Neanderthal-ish bedlam, but this raucous scene is actually telling a story — 112 stories to be exact!

The artist is known for inserting the absurdity of humanity in his work, and he didn’t miss a beat with this one. The painting literally illustrates 112 different proverbs and sayings from the Netherlands. Some of which include, “To be a pillar biter” and “Armed to the teeth.” But the real proverb here is, if you’re not Dutch, you’re not getting much (at least not much face time in a Bruegel painting)!

The Sistine Chapel. You may have heard of it — the big, painted chapel in the Apostolic Palace, nestled in the Vatican City. Well, way back in 1512, Michelangelo was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the story of Genesis across 9 sections of the concave ceiling. Michelangelo’s work would come to be recognized as a cornerstone of high renaissance art. Some speculate that beyond a masterpiece, the artist also left behind a message…

Michelangelo spent many years studying human anatomy. With that deep understanding, the artist was able to depict people with greater realism and insert more cerebral meaning into his paintings. In this famous section, God is surrounded by what looks like a brain. This insinuates that not only did God give Adam life, but also the ability to reason and think.

The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci is almost as famous for its rumors of secret meanings as it is for its artistic brilliance. Da Vinci was unique in his genius, and much of that is to due to his vast and diverse passions. Not only an artist, Da Vinci identified as a mathematician, scientist, inventor, and even a musician. 

And when a fellow musician admired Da Vinci’s work, he noticed something peculiar. When the five lines of a musical staff are drawn across the supper, the bread rolls combined with the apostle’s hands create musical notes. When you follow Da Vinci’s signature style of right to left, the notes make up a 40-second musical composition. 

Vincent Van Gogh created Café Terrace at Night in 1888, a scene so charming, you can almost hear accordions. Some art historians have a different take on this painting though. There are theories that posit this café might have a more symbolic impetus, coming from the son of a Protestant minister…  

There have been many comparisons with Van Gogh’s Café Terrace and Da Vinci’s Last Supper. The central figure in white is thought to be a representation of Jesus, while the dark figure in the doorway is speculated to represent Judas. 

There is a good story here, but first let’s take a moment to appreciate the name of this painting’s creator, Hieronymus Bosch. Ohhh, it’s so good! Hieronymus Bosch is the creator behind this triptych oil painting titled, The Garden of Earthly Delights. What is even more delightful are the secret, behind-the-scenes notes…

These notes, found on the bottom of a tortured soul in the “hell panel” of the painting, translate into approximately 28 seconds of what can only be described as a reject Nokia ringtone. This melody is widely referred to as “the butt-song from hell.” 

The legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo had a husband who was, apparently, a painter as well. Just kidding, Diego Rivera is totally a big shot. Due to his notoriety, in the early 1940s, Nelson Rockefeller commissioned Rivera to paint a mural, Man at the Crossroads for the Rockefeller Center in New York City. Alas, even the richest of the rich don’t always get exactly what they want…

Young Rockefeller didn’t appreciate the inclusion of the communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin in the mural, so he had the painting destroyed. In response, Rivera re-created the mural in 1943 in Mexico city and titled it, Man, the Center of the Universe. Not only was Lenin even more prominently featured in this mural, but Rivera, not so coyly, painted in Rockefeller’s father below the bacterial illustration of syphilis.

Conspiracy Theories

The Rothschild magazine predicted the coronavirus more than a year ago

“It’s hard to believe that two months ago this virus, which absorbed all the attention of the media, financial markets and politicians, was absolutely unknown to us,” said the Director General of the World Health Organization. The appearance of the killer virus was predicted a year ago.

While the normal flu annually kills over half a million people on the planet, there are no vaccines or effective medicines for the Chinese adversity. The WHO Secretary-General responsibly stated that it would take about a year and a half to develop a vaccine and specialized treatments. 

The first version on the coronavirus source was through bats and snakes. On February 7, they announced that they had found a potential intermediate host for the infection. This is an ancient pangolin that appeared on Earth 60 million years ago. The strain found in its body is 99% identical to that found in infected people. 

The 2019 Economist Cover

At the top of the cover there is a panda (China). From the East (where China is located) four “Horsemen of the Apocalypse” leave – Pestilence (coronavirus epidemic), War (Syria, Libya, Afghanistan), Hunger (food shortages due to epidemics and border closures), Death (from epidemics and wars) . But the most interesting detail on the cover is the image of a strange animal, which many be taken for an anteater. And only now it became clear that this is a pangolin. Given that the epidemic in China began in December 2019, the encrypted cover was prophetic. The main argument of this prophecy is the pangolin, whose appearance on the cover did not find any interpretation until February 7, 2020, when it was announced that the metagenomes of the pangolin, coronavirus and infected people are almost identical.

The influential British weekly The Economist is considered the global mouthpiece of the Rothschilds, the planet’s oldest financial clan. They are also called the secret rulers of the world, the top of the “golden billion.” According to cheap conspiracy theories, there are enough resources on Earth only for the world elite and the personnel serving it – the “golden billion”. The rest of the people of the world behind the scenes allegedly decided to counteract with the help of wars, hunger, epidemics. It turns out that the Rothschilds sent a message on a new epidemic by warning their supporters with an encrypted cover. Seemingly, everything converges – horsemen of the Apocalypse from the East, including the first, on a white horse – Death and the mysterious pangolin being the source of a terrible unknown infection. The vast majority of world residents have not even heard about these animals until the last days.

In that issue of forecasts, there was an alarming article on the trade in many billions of rare and endangered animals. Even elephants, tigers, lions and rhinos remain in danger.

In 2019, a lot of attention will be paid to the problem, the magazine wrote. Colombo will host a summit to protect these animals. There is a curious passage there. “One of the biggest breakthroughs is China’s ban on the sale of ivory and its products in 2018. But some ivory merchants have moved into a new market: pangolins. “These anteaters, valued for their meat and the alleged healing properties of the scales, are currently the best-selling endangered species in the world.”

According to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, pangolins are on the list of the most protected animals. Catching them is prohibited in China. But this does not save them from poachers. In Chinese folk medicine, pangolin scales are used to increase potency, treat many diseases, from asthma to cancer. Meat is considered a delicacy. In restaurants, they go for 60 – 70 dollars per kg, illegally of course

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, over the past ten years, poachers have caught more than 1 million pangolins in Asian and African forests and transported them to China and Vietnam. The meat was also illegally sold in the famous market in Wuhan. Employees of this market became the first patients with COVID-19 at the end of December.

So the appearance of the most popular animal among international smugglers on the cover of the Economist’s forecasts is justified but is the fact that the pangolin has become the alleged source of a new epidemic in the world a pure coincidence?

US military uses 5G network to secretly control the weather

Some members of the anti-5G movement have suspicions that the ultra-fast satellite network may be connected to a mysterious military facility that can control the weather.

The HAARP (High-Frequency Ionospheric Scattering Research Program) is a transmitting device used to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, located in Alaska. Its construction, funded by the military, was completed in 2007, but just seven years later, the program was closed and ownership of the HAARP and its capabilities were transferred to the University of Alaska.

For many years, conspiracy theorists have argued that the US government uses HAARP to control the weather, a statement repeatedly denied by officials and scientists. Some believe that the power of HAARP is beyond the scope of weather manipulation, claiming that it is capable of mass control of the mind through the emission of extremely powerful low-frequency signals, with ionospheric heaters (powerful radio waves) specifically targeted at people. Interest in HAARP has resumed due to growing tensions between Iran and the US, and some say the program is not only active, but also strengthened by the deployment of 5G. HAARP operates in the ionosphere, a layer of our atmosphere that is located at an altitude of 75 – 1000 km above the Earth’s surface.

In addition, an increasing number of 5G satellites are being launched into orbit, SpaceX plans to launch another 1,400 as part of its Starlink fleet by the end of 2020. The company has applied to launch another 30,000, while other technology giants such as Amazon and Facebook are also planning to send their own 5G satellites into space. The US Air Force Report 2025, published in 2008 with a 3,300-page report identifying future challenges for the US military, contains this intriguing paragraph: “The high-energy space laser system is considered a multi-megawatt chemical laser capable of hitting ground, air or space targets With lower power settings, it can turn off the enemy’s optics, perform passive sensing tasks, actively highlight the target with a laser, or even change the weather.

American activist and author Arthur Firstenberg is one of many 5G critics who believes that the Starlink fleet will harm the Earth’s electromagnetic environment, creating an “imminent threat to the extinction of all life on Earth,” he told the Daily Star. “Starlink satellites are located in the lowest layer of the magnetosphere called the ionosphere. The ionosphere, which is the source of energy for all life on Earth, will be exposed to the full power of satellite radiation instead of just a negligible fraction of the energy that goes through power lines located on the ground.”

However, he does not believe that satellites will be used in technology like HAARP, and believes that weather control is much less feasible than some people think. Global Research’s Makia Freeman has linked the growing 5G network with HAARP, claiming technology is part of a broader plot of surveillance and domination. “It is vital to understand the big picture of a grand conspiracy,” she writes. “All of these destructive and dangerous technologies – 5G, Wi-Fi, wireless radiation, HAARP, ionospheric heating, geoengineering, GMOs, etc. – are going to be woven into one giant integrated monitoring, command and control system.”

As one example of the interconnectedness of these technologies, she cites chemtrails (chemical trails), “filled with metal particles that 5G can use.” Other conspiracy theorists believe that 5G continues to control the atmosphere that HAARP produced prior to its closure in 2014. A 2017 plan to install 50,000 5G cell towers across California was met with massive protests from local residents, some of whom claimed to be part of a “geo-engineering” weather observation and control storyline.

What coronavirus has to do with the Davos economic forum logo?

With humanity living in fear of a possible pandemic of the deadly coronavirus virus, all conspiracy theories (or not) that go public, try to cover every possible association, event and situation, as crazy and unlikely as it may sound.

Therefore, the coronavirus is associated by some, with this year’s Davos logo and royal families.
