UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) have always held our curiosity. No one really knows where they come from or what beings are inside them. We can’t even predict their origins.
Such mysterious thoughts have riddles us since the ancient times. And their paintings are a proof of that. Yes, UFOs have been discovered in many historical paintings. Here are one of them.
In 1538 AD, a tapestry known as the “Triumph of Summer” was created in the city of Bruges in Belgium.
It depicts the victorious ascent of the ruler to power. However, the tapestry depicts something much more interesting and easy to miss if you don’t look closely – numerous objects in the sky, in the classic shape of a UFO.
The city of Bruges is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish region of Belgium in the northwest of the country.
The city’s origins date back to the pre-Roman era and it has been the target of many invasions due to its strategic location.
If you look at the top of the tapestry, especially on the left side, you can see several disc-shaped black flying objects – they are not associated with any religious images that are often found in the sky in other works of medieval art.
Some historians suggest that these objects symbolize the significance of this ruler’s coming to power and that he enjoyed the support of the “divine”.
But since when have flying disk-shaped objects been considered a symbol of divine intervention? And if so, why?
If people of that era associated flying saucers with divinity, then they saw such objects in the sky and associated them with “divine” phenomena.
The tapestry is called “The Triumph of Summer”, Bruges, 1538, and is kept in the Bavarian National Museum.
