 Evidence of the Gods - A Visual Tour of Alien Influence in the Ancient World by Erich Von Daniken documents many exotic stone forms, artifacts, sculptures, cave artwork, modern art forms and even images of space aliens imagined by ancient cultures thousands of years ago.

Von Daniken depicts Nan Madol which is a huge complex of canals, ditches, tunnels, stairwells,
earthworks and walls. Sarcophagi with platinum bars were discovered in the depths under
Nan Madol. A multi-purpose bird Garuda is depicted in numerous temples throughout Indonesia.
The bird has a bat-like appearance with an intricate gold crown and blue/gold pearls
throughout.

Von Daniken shows the Easter Island statues which depict robot-like facial characteristics
with plain faces, long pointed noses and deep set eyes. Near Dunedin, New Zealand, there
are 100 spherical boulders lying on Moeraki Beach. The rock solidifies around a calcite
core as in a ball. The Maoris called these rocks "food baskets".

The author explains how Aborigines revered wondinas or mother goddesses. These statues
had an angelic appearance with oval eyes inset deep into the skull, a square mouth and a halo. There
are several thousands of these rock drawings in Australia which are thousands of
years old and aboriginal in nature. A few stone age space forms appear to be spacemen
wearing helmuts and spacesuits.

The author provides  illustrations of native American rock drawings of the Hopi Indians portrayed in time and space. Some messages facilitate navigation while others provide warnings to travelers. There is a picture on a dry mountain  slope above the Tarapaca desert in the northern part of Chile. The art form has an elongated body adorned with the image of a three part electronic circuit on the head. Another artform looks like a ghost painted in white against a black backdrop on a hill.

Von Daniken tours the area near Blythe along the Colorado River. In this vicinity,  there are pictures of robotic forms and humanoids adorning the sides of mountains. These forms can be seen from airplanes passing overhead. In Nazca, a 29 meter image of of an astronaut - like robot is carved into the rock on a hillside.

In the fifth century, India's greatest poet, Kalidasa wrote about a flight from Lanka to Ayodhya. Von Daniken attempts to replicate the panoramic view of the ocean from above, as well as submarine mountains.

The author provides a colorful tour of Newgrange. Human and animal bones were found at Newgrange together with seemingly never ending tunnels with multi-dimensional stones set into the hillside in order to create the image of an infinite tunnel.

Evidence of the Gods - A Visual Tour of Alien Influence in the Ancient World by Erich Von Daniken is an excellent documentary on ancient cultures and the influence of modern technology, symbols and even alien forms peppered throughout  the artwork of peoples who lived thousands of years ago.
