Tomb of Ptahhotep
Below on the left is a photo taken inside the Tomb of PtahHotep, Saqqara, Egypt, which dates back to the 5th Dynasty (about 2400 BC). If you look closely, inside the white box, ancient alien believers say they see a grey alien (or “Grey”)[read more].
Greys are small-bodied sexless extraterrestrial (ET) beings with smooth grey skin, enlarged head and large black eyes [read more].
Do you see a grey alien? Many ancient alien believers see a grey alien:
«We were flabbergasted to say the least when we took a closer look at this image and could make out an ‘alien grey’ in the bottom of the picture! Does this prove that the building and placement of the Pyramids were aided by alien intelligence?»[source]
«This picture could explain why the Egyptians appeared to be so technically advanced, and how they were able to build the Pyramids with such precision.»[source]
If this isn’t a grey alien then what is it? Below is a much clearer and more detailed illustration of the same painting from an illustrated book entitled “All of Egypt” (Bonechi ed.):
What you’re looking at is a vase containing some lotus blossoms (a plant) with a bud on each side. In order to understand the context, let’s see the complete picture grey alien believers will never show you:
The picture shows servants offering the vase with the lotus blossoms along with food, fruits and animals to Ptahhotep (seated at the table on the left). Ptah-hotep served during the reign of Izezi (2388 till 2356 BC) as an oracle and advisor.
Lotus blossoms are depicted in other parts of the tomb of Ptahhotep:
A carrier is holding a small jar of the same shape as the “alien”:
Other vessels similar to the one mistaken for the alien can be seen in other paintings depicting the ritual feasts offered to the gods in many other Egyptian tombs. This is a famous frescoe from the tomb of Nebamun (London, British Museum):
Conclusions: The painting in the tomb of Ptahhotep at Saqqara doesn’t contain any aliens – grey or otherwise. The painting represents the “offering to the gods”, and in particular the face of the presumed alien is a lotus blossom in a vase.
