Suspicious Sumerian seals.

I have to say, the bird like figure does look like a space ship with aliens on it. More interesting is this seal with a solar system on it.

According to the stories it includes the destroyed planet that became the asteroid belt. I counted, there are 11 in total. Since I’m pretty sure only the moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter are visible with the naked eye, that leaves four unaccounted for..

    Fascinating seal. The king’s freind is clearly introducing an astrologer friend who has many weapons and symbols of knowledge, power and divination. Could ancients have worked out the ‘Copernican’ solar system?

    Chinese had concave metalized mirrors in second century(Nat. Geo.).
    Then there are the reports of a huge concave mirror on the lighthouse at Alexandria which cast fire light and magnified ships. Lapidary arts were advanced in prehistory. And earliest of all, some grindstones would have inadvertently polished to a concave reflective surface. Any of the above, pointed at Sol would have started a fire at it’s focal point. Could a curious ancient resist pointing it at Luna or stars? Is it possible that ancients had ‘Newtonian’ reflectors?

    In the solar system on the seal, the two smallest dots on the upper right are out of the circle slightly. Could they be moons of Jupiter & Saturn? Likewise the small dot at bottom is out of circle a bit, could it be Earth’s Luna? That would leave eight planets but i read too much into a seal that was never intended to represent accurate detail.

  3. Most art of the ancient times were made to depict very accurate things, the solar system included. They would not have included 11 planets just because they felt like it, there was a reason, like they knew they were there perhaps… But how? How could they know that?

  4. The 2 men facing eachother seem to be studying one lone planet standing by itself (between the two facing eachother men) with their telescope(?)contraption.

    • I also thought this when I first saw it. There is definitely a spot between the two men who face each other and they could very well be studying this planet/object and not the others that are much closer to the star.

  5. Dear Mathilda, just in a hurry. The first seal you show doesn’t seem to be ‘Sumerian’, but Persian, which makes a lot of difference, in time too. The figure you describe as ‘birdlike figure that looks like a spaceship with aliens on it’ looks to me like the figure of the Persian God Ahura-Mazda. So no UFO at all.
    The second seal is Sumerian, at least judging the fairly archaic cuneiform script that the seal shows. But it does not show the Sun and 11 planets. It shows The Sun in the Pleiades: ‘the wandering stars’, whose appearance in the nightsky announced the right time to sow.
    This was common knowledge with the early farmers, not only in Mesopotamia, but in Bronze Age Europe as well.
    Some ten years ago, a bronze disk with a gold Sun and Moon set into The Pleiades was found in Nebra in former East Germany. It was connected to the Aunjetitzer Culture there and dated to ca 3600 BP – the last stage of Early Bronze age in that region. It was found that it was used as an astronomical calender. The Nebra Disk was shown in a beautiful show in 2005 in Halle, in Kopenhagen and in Mannheim as ‘Der Geschmiedete Himmel- die Weite Welt im Herze Europas vor 3600 Jahre – so for you non-German speakers (although I am Dutch)something like: The Forged Sky – The Wide World 3600 years ago in the Heart of Europe. As far as I know the book of the exhibition was only in German and possibly Danish, but it gives very clear and enlighting information about farming and the role of The Pleiades.
    So the second seal shows a seated vegetation God, with a branch in his hand, maybe begged by a king and a priest to bestow a good harvest. Possibly the contraption between them is a plough.

    • I’ll take your word for it Frans. I posted this after my brother forced a Von Daniken book into my hands.

  9. If the ancients did have a way of viewing the solar system in detail like this then why would they set it in clay. there are so many things that it could be. It may be a simple plea to a god for a good harvest, or a warning.
    To my untrained eyes it seems like they are looking at a planet far out of our solar system for some reason.
    Planet X was visable back then maybe?
