This new video is Part 1 of a series on UFOs in historic art. Description below:
The Annunciation, with Saint Emidus, was painted by Italian artist Carlo Crivelli in 1486. It hangs in the National Gallery in London. The painting depicts the Virgin Mary at the moment she realizes she will give birth to the savior Jesus. A beam of light coming down from a circular cloud is interpreted by most main stream art critics and historians to be the halo of the Lord projecting down to Mary the message of her immaculate conception, a moment known as the Annunciation. UFO enthusiasts however, have interpreted the disc shaped object to be representative of a UFO.
