If you are a person who likes to study ancient cultures, you have probably noticed in various carvings and paintings that the figures are holding something that appears to be a handbag or purse. Conspiracy website UFO Today has released a video that made some pretty astonishing allegations.
According to Sciencevibe.com, “They have found evidence that includes petroglyphs, incised carvings, and actual stone objects, and have been found in such diverse locales as Turkey, Iran, India, Egypt, Central America, and New Zealand, among cultures ranging from the Sumerians and Egyptians to the Olmecs and the Maori. They correctly point out that they appear in archaeological objects from a wide range of historical eras. What does it all mean? Well, CONSPIRACY theorists are claiming to have discovered proof of time travel! And they point to finding evidence of ancient statues holding what looks like modern-day designer handbags as long ago as in Mesopotamia, the cradle of modern civilization. They point out that the symbol of the mysterious handbag is shown in countless stone carvings and statues, dating back as far as 10,000 BC.”
From the Sumerians of Iraq to the ruins of Turkish temples to the decorations of Maori of New Zealand and the crafts made by the Olmec’s of Central America, one mysterious anomaly seems to show up time and time again, the handbag.
Sometimes the image appears as a stand-alone object, sometimes in the hand of a person, deity, or mythical being. But they are there, time and time again.
Experts have been baffled, though there are theories, according to a report in Ancient Origins.
“One possible theory for the proliferation of this image is its simple and straightforward representation of the cosmos,” says the report. “The semi-circle of the image (what would appear to be the bag’s strap) represents the hemisphere of the sky. Meanwhile, the solid square base represents the earth. … Thus, the image is used to symbolize the (re)unification of the earth and sky, of the material and the non-material elements of existence.”
Another theory? “When used in Assyrian art it is said the purse holds magic dust,” says the report. When depicted in Olmec art they postulate it contains herbs for getting high. This suggests that the handbag may have been a standard of measurement uniquely discovered by both cultures.”
There are more ideas, too. “A Maori myth tells of a hero who once ascended to the home of the gods and returned to earth carrying three baskets full of wisdom,” explains the report. “Thus, much like the Göbekli Tepe handbags, the Maori handbags symbolize worship and gratitude for divinely inspired knowledge.”
The following video suggests that the handbag motif was connected to the Annunaki, who represented a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamia.
The video also suggested that the “handbags” could have been taken back by time travelers from the future, before being carved into statues, or if they were some sort of ancient alien technology given to out ancient ancestors.
“How did this handbag symbol become a worldwide phenomenon? And more importantly, what did it represent? Did it contain secret knowledge offered by the gods as some of the myths claim? Was it some form of secret technology that we have simply forgotten?”
To be clear, we are making no claims, these are simply theories. Do you have any of your own?
