Aert de Gelder was a relatively unknown Flemish Painter in the early 18th Century. As was common even at that date, Painters were often commissioned to paint various subjects relating to Religion. The more popular topics were Christ's Birth, His Baptism and of course - His end on The Cross. But no piece of Art History is as odd as this one - painted by Gelder in 1710. No record exists of just ''who'' commissioned it. Perhaps it was simply a diversion of The Painter. But the truly odd thing about ''The Baptism of Christ'' is that The Artist placed an obvious large, Flying Disc (hovering) in The Skies. Further strange, this Object is ''beaming down'' a series of ''lights or perhaps rays'' which ''illuminate'' Christ during this crucial event in His Life. Just what was The Painter trying to convey. or perhaps just was related to Him with regards to information of what to paint. The ''Craft'' is obviously something straight out of a modern 20th Century Sci-Fi Movie. How could an 18th Century Painter ''know'' what a UFO looked like?
