This is a collection of images of the alien race called “The Greys”, juxtaposed with images of ancient philosphers with gray beards. The connection of the color gray to otherwordly, supernatural wisdom is of interest here, as well as a changing notion of where we get images of the “godlike” (from omniscient men with beards to a more sci-fi, super-intelligent alien helper race). The images of The Greys (aliens) were culled from various websites, and depict both claims of true photographic evidence of aliens (autopsies, grainy enhanced photos, etc) and pop culture and homemade illustrations of them. The images of the Gray (beards) are largely from busts, drawings, and Raphael’s painting, The School of Athens.
— Incidentally, it’s totally unclear to me why certain images remained full size and had thumbnails stacked on top of them (at least, that’s the way the post appears in my browser). Maybe it’s a message?
