The Annunciation with Saint Emidius
Carlo Crivelli was an Italian Renaissance painter of conservative Late Gothic decorative sensibility, who absorbed early influences from the Vivarini, Squarcione and Mantegna into a distinctive personal style that makes a contrast to his Venetian contemporary Giovanni Bellini. In this painting titled The Annunciation with Saint Emidius, a disk shaped object is shining a pencil beam of light down into Mary's crown chakra. Many supporters of the Ancient astronaut theory point to this and many other paintings as evidence of early man's contact with the extra terrestrial.
