The larger image is Chumash Indian art from the Santa Barbara area in California.
Rock paintings from ancient times. Represented here are shapes and patterns glimpsed
during shamanic visions.
The inset picture is a "rod" a phenomenon often captured by video
by some to be a heretofore unknown species of aerial creature. Too fast to be seen by the
naked eye, rods have been appearing on frames of video tape for some years now. Search
the Internet for more information.
The reason I've combined the two should be plain. The two black and white creatures
the top and left are clearly "rods". Not a bad visualization by a Chumash shaman in the
days before video.
