Subject: THE PAINTING ?
"The Crucifixion" hangs above the altar at the Visoki Decani Monestary in Kosovo, Yugoslavia ~ it was painted in 1350.
On either side of Jesus are a pair of Jetsons like skycars, one chasing the other ~ the pilots apparently working controls.
The leading craft is decorated with two twinkling stars, one reminiscent of national insignia on modern aircraft

The above painting in the link was painted in 1350 , over 600 years ago long before flying craft as we know them were invenred, yet the picture clearly shows a being seated in a flying craft wasa this artist painting something from his own imagination which would come to pass over 600 years later OR was he paing something that he or others had seen ?

I am giving you another idea about it. Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata also talk about such flying objects used by its characters. It rests the case about imagination thing in my opinion. Another argument, which many people in the world indeed make might be--knowledge of such instruments and devices was available to Vedic people, but I don't fully buy it.

My question is: If a painter had knowledge of these flying objects, why did he keep it as a secret crypted in a painting?

Why did he not write an article or a treatise on it?

You have to keep in mind the times the artist was living in , people were accused of being in league with the devil for saying such things and burned at the stake , but by picturing it on a painting in the comparitive security of a monastary he would feel more secure smiling face

I agree with the possibility but then they could have done more with that knowledge than leaving it encrypted in a painting for posterity.
