ALIENS IN ART: Madonna and Child
By Jacopo del Sellaio Palazzo Vecchio - 1485
A pupil of Fra Filippo Lippi, del Sellaio was friends with (and influenced by) famous artist Sandro Botticelli. He often painted decorative wedding chests, plates, furniture and other decorater items. Madonna and Child with the Infant, Saint John the Baptist and Attending Angel, painted in 1485, is an example of a decorative plate painting with a gold leaf ornate frame.
What is usually missed by people observing this painting is the presence of a UFO in the sky. An enlarged version is also shown to illuminate the detail work that shows it is clearly a UFO. Interestingly, the source of this image, the gallery web site featuring the work, has a broken link for the enlarged UFO image. It is the only broken link to an artistic image out of hundreds that appear on this site. Why is this one image missing? Is it too controversa?l Luckily we were able to find another resource for this close up image of the UFO (shown below). The UFO is of the familiar dish or saucer shape with rays radiating from it, implying it is emitting light. Also, in the upper left of this painting are strange creatures under the sun. Another close up is offered of these tentacle-like creatures. Are these also aliens? Doubtful they are intended to be angels since angels are always portraid with wings and halos in Vecchio's pantings. Again, we see a well known artist suggesting Jesus and John the Baptist are tied to alien origins.
Above: Painting of Madonna and Child by Jacopo del Sellaio Palazzo Vecchio - 1485 shows a UFO in the sky behind the event. Artists of Vecchio's caliber don't arbitrarily select the contents of their works. Hundreds of hours of work go into a painting. This UFO was selected for a deliberate reason. Was Vecchio suggesting Jesus comes from ancient alien origins? Did he also have access to vatican-protected information about ancient aliens?

Strange alien creatures rising up to, or decending down from, the sun. Or, is this a star symbol implying the place of origin for these beings?
