the unidentified identified
There was a documentation on unidentified flying objects in ancient and classical art the other night on STARGATE. The artwork included frescos, tapestries, illustrations, oil paintings and early photographs. Often the UFO was displayed in a religious context.

On example of such artwork is "The Annunciation" (1486) by Carlo Crivelli (1430-1495). A disk shaped object is shining a pencil beam of light down onto the crown of Mary's head.
Crivelli was born in Venice. He lived and worked mainly on the Adriatic coast. The first documentation of Crivelli was in 1457 for having abducted Tarsia, a sailor's wife, and subsequentially imprisoned. Later he was documented as an artist, too. He frequented the wealthy court of Ferrara (dominated by the artistic presence of Piero della Francesca) and fell in love with their elaborate ornamentation used to imply luxury. He often manipulated raised plaster in his paintings to give a three-dimensional effect to details such as drops of Christ's blood or the tears of mourners. Crivelli's paintings are all of religious subjects, done in an elaborate, old-fashioned style rooted in the Paduan tradition. HIs metallic line was gothic and irreal. His forms and themes suggest a mellowed out version of Orthodox Byzantine icons.
Crivelli was good at painting details. A love for detail seems to be a trait of those who like material wealth.
For years Crivelli was forgotten, obliterated by High Renanissance artistic tendencies. He'd been too geographically isolated to be able to learn the latest artistic trends. And because a large part of his artworks, mainly polytypics, were dismembered and dispersed. His work thus fragmented, it could not be totally understood.

Parts do not make a whole.
