This Rhino is yet another one of the sections of the cave art that holds more than one instruction. Some of you will already know parts of the story about this Rhino but it is the section of markings that are on its rear side that are the focus of this page.
This is the piece in question.
As I’ve stated in my book and elsewhere, this piece looks as though it’s a door or gateway of some kind. It provides the feeling that you are looking out at something. This large, dark, upside down L seems to have something attached to its side. This is giving off the impression that you’re only seeing half an object. The detail in this object is rather intricate for it to be a mistake, a smudge, a random scribble of markings done by a cave man after eating or drinking something that sends him into some altered state. As we have seen in other parts of the cave, the possible use of a mirroring method where only half of an image is deliberately produced we could say that this is the same intent here.
So let’s mirror the portion I’m rambling on about (I have produced this image online but it was not as precise as this new one. The older version was smaller, and cropped off too short in places due to a small partial rotation of the image to get it on a direct vertical. This small amount of rotation was not required on any other mirrored image posted elsewhere. All other images were mirrored directly on the vertical, exactly as they were created in the art.)
Now we have something that appears to show that it is equipped with everything necessary for flight. We can make out wings, flaps, a tail section, a cockpit and even the track fairings that appear on the undersides of our modern aircrafts wings.
That’s quite a strong resemblance between the two, but that’s the same with a lot of this cave art. Way too many similarities and coincidences.
Me being me, thoughts were going through my head and I wasn’t quite satisfied that this simple comparison was enough to provide evidence that pointed towards an aircraft having been painted in 30,000 year old art, but due to the way, and the places, that this art had taken me, why not see what else was lurking in the depths of time and take a larger view of the area.
It didn’t take me long to spot that there are softly painted, dark, slightly curved lines coming from the rear of the wing tips. Taking a look at the modern aircraft above and we see slip streams trailing behind the wings. This made me think of the vortices that aircraft wings create when they fly through the air. Here is an example;
Going back to the cave image and we do kind of see something that might possibly be these large swirls way behind the craft, although they appear to be swirling the wrong way and they are further out from the wings than would be expected but their appearance is of interest.
Ok, fair enough… Maybe… But what about power? Engines? You know, something that’ll give it the ability to actually take off?
This took me a while. There is nothing present on the wings so could it be some exotic form of power or could it be a thrust type engine typical of a fighter jet or the space shuttle, for example? I looked closer at the rear of the craft, directly behind the tail section and there is a large, thick X painted in gray with a small rust coloured column further below that gives the impression of a rocket engine firing. So, back to the great research lab on the interweb and let’s find out what the “power” of a jet engine looks like..
Can you see the X???
This piece of mirrored art was starting to look far more like a rocket powered craft than a mistake by a high cave man. But, if there really is a connection between Earth and Mars, that you can read more about on this site, for example, http://www.chauvetdreams.co.uk/?page_id=121 how would an aircraft of that design withstand the extreme heat of re-entry? I remembered the space shuttle and it has black heat resistant tiles all over its nose and under belly. Rather oddly, on the nose of this cave craft there is a thick black line painted all over the front edge of it (scroll up and have a look).
If this thick, dark line is giving us the tell tail sign of a heat shield, then maybe this cave art craft was capable of vertical take-off and landing unless the Nazca lines have anything to do with this, but why only one part of the world? Why can’t we see other huge runways anywhere else? Is the VTOL (Vertical take-off and landing) the way it was done?
This then led me to the idea that if VTOL was correct, there may be craters on Mars that may not be natural but were, instead, formed by the blast of this crafts engine as it carried out VTOL’s. Finding those would be great fun and I know someone who might actually be happy to have a go. I’ll ask him, see what he thinks.
