The UFO Vision of Ezekiel
The artwork shows the original 1761 etching together with text from the ancient scriptures from the holy books of the Abrahamic religions. Many people believe that that the UFO Vision of Ezekiel was based on a real encounter with an extra-terrestrial craft sometime around the period 580bc in the region of the Chaldeans by the River Chebar, north of Babylon. Ezekiel’s description of the craft bears no resemblance to anything in existence at that time and has often been considered a problem for religious scholars who have tried to suggest that it was just a chariot.
“The prophet Ezekiel explained his vision of a supreme being that showed itself to him by the banks of the Kebar River during the sixth century BC. Bizarre beings with four wings and four faces materialised in front of him along with clouds and fire. Along with the beings were machines of undetermined purpose; they had wheels within wheels together with enigmatic “eyes” set all around the border. These wheels or hoops could also fly through the air, and land on the ground before taking to the air again. As the smoke cleared, Ezekiel was able to see the supreme being in the centre of the craft.”
