Saw this picture on Ancient Aliens and was wondering if anyone had anymore info on it? I know it is from Tikal but thats about it, anyone seen the whole sculpture that this is a part of?

Please make one post only for the same subject. Members here do check most of the forums and would of responded had they found other pictures like the one you found.

BTW, I did a search and have not find a full picture of that artifact.

Thank you for that post, the Saint. I looked through much of the Google Images before giving up on a full picture.

This image probably depicts an elaborately dressed prisoner of war who is about to be sacrificed :shock: however, the idea for the elaborate astronaut-like garb could have been from a much earlier time -

One could say the object in their mouths could be a device used to breath our (the Earth's) air. It could also be a decorative mask, but the reality is we do not know what it is until an actual unit if found.

That would be a great find: An ancient astronaut spacesuit.

yes, I absolutely agree - you'd think there would be one somewhere! (antiques roadshow?) :lol:

Egypt is dry enough so a spacesuit would still be relatively intact if found. There are so many places we know of that have not been fully explored that it is possible one could find a spacesuit or two in those places.

I am sure someone kept one as a souvenir and hid or buried it nearby. I know I would of.

hmmm, more likely an age-old spacesuit has already been found and the local desert people thought it was an inflatable seat cushion of some kind so they placed it on their camel, and well you know the rest of the story... :cry:

If they need a spacesuit and helmet to be on earth, I don't exactly see them taking it off, so finding a spacesuit would be pretty unlikely. :wink: It would be pretty awesome, though if we did find one!

That does post a problem in finding a spacesuit. It is possible after the quarantine period passed they would not need the suits and kept them for new arrivals to planet Earth.

Thanks for the info, I found out that this incensario is related to the quetzalpapalotl diety. Here are some motifs from the temple a Teotihuacan that coincide with this figure.
