The twelfth figure, the last in the booklet, shows us birds in flight. There are two in the upper part; one looks to me like an owl. Perhaps the other is a crow, like those in Figure 9. There are three birds flying over the horizon at the bottom left; I don’t know what that sketch below it shows, possibly a seated figure. And at the bottom right is a standing winged figure. It could be an angel, or even Mothman, given that this was 1967. The line on the figure’s right side (our left) may be an incomplete wing. Perhaps the semi-circle in which it stands is significant, given the circles in Figures 6 and 8, and the dome in Figures 5 and 11. Flying birds suggest freedom to me, and seem to end the series with an image of liberation — from what, I don’t know.
One of my reasons for posting these was to see if anyone else had seen them, since John’s note suggests that he circulated them among other researchers. So, let me know if you know anything more about them.
I do suspect that the ordering of the pictures is part of their meaning; that there is a narrative, or some kind of progression. They seem to have little to do with UFOs, although some of them could be interpreted as pictures of aliens or craft. Instead, we have crows, campfires, bugs and people running in circles. We begin with a baby and end with an angel, so perhaps a life cycle is intended.
The themes of birth and family have always been part of the UFO story, as well as the fairy lore with which it has so much in common. It may be, though, that these pictures have more to do with the inner conflicts of the artist. As I said at the outset, I think they were drawn by Jaye Paro, but I’m not sure. It would help if we knew where they came from.
