Photographer's Note

This petroglyph image of alien beings is additional proof supporting German author Erich von Daniken's 1968 theory that ancient astronauts visited Earth and were perceived as gods by early humans, in this case the Puebloan native Americans at Capitol Reef National Park, Utah.

In von Daniken's book and later film, "Chariots of the Gods", theorizes humans thousands of years ago were visited by extraterrestial beings, and believed them to be gods which has been repeated frequently around the world by various religions. One example is the Old Testament's chapter on God giving Moses instructions to construct "The Ark of the Covenant", a device to communicate with aliens. Another is the "Nazca Lines" in Peru, large lines carved on the land surface which are explained as landing air strips for space travelers.
