Lizard statues of the Ubaid

Lizard statues of the Ubaid

Postby violetstar » Wed Apr 12, 2017 9:21 pm

In reading the work of Sumerian expert Samuel Kramer,I came across a people who are said to have taught the Sumerians agriculture.Termed proto-Euphrateans by archaeologists,these people are also named after the area-Al Ubaid where remnants of their civilisation have been unearthed.

Of the artefacts the Ubaidic statues modelled on strange reptilian like creatures are a mystery.Thought of by Icke as part of some Illuminati government,many people believe they represent an alien race that came to earth.Any thoughts?

I don't think they're all that mysterious?

A Serpent headed goddess figurine, most likely, given the popularity of anthropomorphic deities and entities in that area and period.

They are unusual in that the goddess serpent figures are not generally shown with offspring which then connect them with maternity.Most serpent goddesses are depicted holding snakes rather than nurturing them.

The Ubaid example also has a male counterpart which suggests these figures may represent either a god and goddess or a more earthly family unit.

For Andrew Collins of course these were depictions of Fallen Angels or perhaps aliens from the star Cygnus,depending on which of his books one reads!
