Casa Santo Domingo Museum, Antigua, Guatemala
(Museo Casa Santo Domingo, Colonial section)

When Maureen Seewald and I visited the Museo Casa de Santo Domingo in Antigua, Guatemala, we came upon this painting. Unfortunately, the camera we had at the time was not the best and since I didn´t know I would be using it later on a blog, I did not take as much care taking it as I should have. No flash, no tripod and low light...so excuse the quality but the content is what matters:

Compare it to the "Glorification of the Eucharist" by Bonaventura Salimbeni, 1600, which now hangs in the church of San Lorenzo in San Pietro, Montalcino, Italy.

When I was a child, the nuns told us the globe between Jesus and God the Father was the earth. Now, as an adult,t I can see that it certainly has no resemblance to our planet but it certainly looks like a Sputnik.

The photo taken by me and posted above of the painting at Museo St. Domingo is only a detail of a larger painting that depicts Mary, Joseph and the baby, Jesus. The man on the cloud holding the sputnik is God the Father (?). While I was taking the photo, Maureen noticed that under the virgin´s robe something had been written and painted over. Upon closer observation I noticed that she was right. I took a photo of that as well but I think the aliens did something to my DVD because I cannot open it. I did ask Maureen to send me a copy since she also has copies of all the pictures we took during this trip. Hopefully they
won´t mess up her DVD as well  :)). As soon as she finds it and sends it, I will post it here.  I would love to know what was originally written on that robe that someone later decided to cover up.

NOTE: Maureen sent the missing pictures. To see them, go to:

To see photos of Sputnik : Sputnik 1 Satellite


I came upon the following websites years ago.

As you well know, one cannot believe everything one reads, sees or hears.

Being a skeptic about everything,   I verified that the paintings had not been touched up. I suggest you also do a separate search of each painting by author and museum.

You be the judge and reach your own conclusions...

In 1974, when I started the trip around South America with my two dogs, Fiera and Corky, I visited the Museo del Oro in Bogota, Colombia, (The Gold Museum). Like I said before, I am a museum junkie.

They had some of these little gold figures of what looked like airplanes but of course, at the time, the archaeologists claimed they were depictions of insects. Watch this video and you be the judge.

I took the following photos while dragging Maureen into every museum we happened to come across during  our road trip.

Please, click photos to enlarge.

Notice the cheekbones as well...
can humans deform their cheek bones
in such a fashion?

Again, notice the cheekbones.

Archaeologists claim that humans  purposely deformed their skulls. Well, I beg to differ. Even if they did deform their skulls how do you explain the size and volume on some of the skulls found in other places like Peru and Egypt? Humans might be able to deform their bones but I don´t think there was any way they could increase the size and volume.

I am sure that  there were some earthlings who were cons and purposely deformed their babies´ skulls to fool others into believing they too were related to the gods. But I am also sure they could not have achieved the volume and size  found in the other skulls not matter how hard they tried.

Would this also explain why the Pharaohs wore the hats that they did?

Here are a couple of interesting links:

These sculptures were found in the Mayan, Aztec and Olmec Pyramids.

But if you still have any doubts that the Asians were here before the Spaniards, take a look at this:

Not only were the Asians in Mexico before Columbus but they were in Peru before the Incas. Check out this link:

Archaeologists today claim that the Mayas disappeared. The funny thing is that I frequently see them walking around in Mexico.

I have seen some that look exactly like the Mayas in the murals in the Pyramids. So, when I see one, I approach them and say:  "You must be a ghost!"  They look at the crazy stranger (me) with surprise . And then I add, "Because, according to what archaeologists are saying nowadays, you people disappeared."

Then they give me a nod and a knowing smile.

I wish I had some photos of them to post here but I never ask them if I can take a photo. I don´t wish to offend.

But I have some of people we met in our travels.

If you want to see Mayas walking among us, travel to:

Palenque, Mexico
Metzabock, Chiapas
Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

Keep your eyes open as you walk the streets and you might be fortunate enough to see real Mayas, like the ones in the murals. And then you too can go up to them and say: "You must be a ghost!!"

Who are the Lacandons?

The Lacandons, Metzabock. Chiapas  - go to "language"  and choose English or whichever language you prefer.

By now you must be wondering if I believe in God. The answer is YES !

Even though I do not believe in established religions or churches, I do believe in a very Loving, Life-Giving, Omnipresent, Creative Being which is pure Intelligent Light.

I believe the closets visual glimpse we can get of God is what the Chinese call  Chi....and our auras.

"That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world." - John 1:9

"For in Him we live and move and have out being." Acts 17:28
