MessageToEagle.com – We find a great variety of prehistoric figurines around the world and many of them are very curious in their appearance.
These enigmatic figurines, dated to the so-called Ubaid period in Ur (6000 to 4000 BC) were unearthed by Sir Charles Leonard Woolley (17 April 1880 – 20 February 1960), a British archaeologist best known for his excavations in the 1920s and 1930s in Mesopotamia.
The figurines depict snake- or reptilian-headed humanoids that were found in several Ubaid cemeteries in the vicinity of Ur, southern Iraq.
Tell (mound) of Ubaid has given its name to the prehistoric Ubaid culture considered to be the earliest settlement on the muddy plain of south Mesopotamia and this culture spread northward up the Tigris-Euphrates during the fifth millennium BC and lasted until the beginning of the Uruk Period.
“Each Ubaid figurine has its own unique pose. Most interesting is a figurine depicting a naked female feeding a child having long slanted eyes and the head of a reptile.
It suggests that the baby was seen as having been born with these features. In other words, the `lizard-like’ heads of the figurines are not masks, or symbolic animalistic forms, but abstract images of an actual race believed by the Ubaid people to have possessed such reptilian qualities,” (Andrew Collins, bestselling author).
Ubaid alien-looking beings are often linked to myths and legends about ancient spacemen who came to Earth to seed the planet and promised to return one day.
Several authors – proponents of ancient astronaut theories – like for example Erich von Däniken and the late Zecharia Sitchin, mention these curiously looking reptilian beings.
