The Painting “Madonna of the UFO”
Randle, Kevin D. Project Blue Book Exposed 1st ed. Ruppelt, Edward J. The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects 1st ed. The painting is round, is one meter in diameter, and is adorned with a precious golden frame; it is located in the Hall of Hercules on the second floor of the Palazzo Vecchio, which takes its name from the coffered ceiling depicting the Twelve Labours of Hercules.
The circular painting bears the usual iconographic motif of the Renaissance : in the foreground the Virgin is seen kneeling with folded hands and leaning toward the baby, who is lying on a hem of her garment. While the baby Jesus is reaching his hand toward his mother, St. John is attempting to support him. Behind the head of the Madonna, an ellipsoidal object can be seen in the sky, one that is very similar to modern depictions of UFOs. There is also a man painted in the background, a shepherd, with his hand on his forehead and his head turned toward the sky.
Next to him is a dog that is also looking in the direction of the flying object. The unidentified flying object resembles a lead-colored disk that is tilted to the left and that has a kind of turret dome very similar to descriptions given by traditional science fiction to extraterrestrial spacecraft. Many have asked themselves the reason why the artist chose to put a flying object in a picture dealing with sacred subjects. According to art historians the flying saucer is actually an angel bearing the appearance of a luminous cloud.
Another clue that this is an angel is the fact that in many paintings of the Florentine Renaissance the subject of the Nativity was accompanied by that of the Annunciation. It is also common to see a dog looking at the apparition. In many cases, the Angel comes out of a cloud surrounded by light or, in the oldest paintings, by golden rays.
But the painting has another special feature: in the top left corner can be seen the Nativity Star with three other small stars or flames. A very similar detail is present in the Madonna of the Book by Sandro Botticelli. The three stars in the Byzantine tradition of painting represent the threefold virginity of the Madonna: before, during, and after childbirth. Therefore, according to the hypothesis of art historians, the angelic, luminous cloud, and the three star are all meant to reiterate the cardinal dogmas of the Catholic faith.
