The handbag symbol, synonymous with the modern woman today has been spotted in the hands of ancient nobles from Mesopotamia to Mexico.
"In Mesopotamia, the cradle of modern civilization, the symbol of the mysterious handbag is shown in countless stone carvings and statues, dating back as far as 10.000 bc, according to UFO fan site Disclose.tv.
According to the report, the handbag motif has appeared consistently in many ancient civilizations, dating as far back as 10.000 years BC.
The report referred to a recent video posting by UFO Today on Youtube titled 'The Secret of the handbag in ancient stone carvings and statues - Ancient Aliens?'
The caption accompanying the Youtube posting described the handbag motif being connected to the history of the Annunaki, who represent a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamia.
It goes on to look at the appearence of the handbag during the time of the Sumerians, the Phoenicians, Assyrians and the Etruscans and discuss the handbag motive dominating stone carvings and statues from that era.
Crossing the ocean to South America, the report also argues that the handbag motif can be found in Tula, 'another archeological site situated in Mexico that was developed during the times of the Toltecs after the fall of Teotihuacan, as UFO Today describes the similarities.
Closer to home, the UFO conspiracy theorists also found a link citing 'even in Indonesia we find ancient stone carvings with a stylized version of the handbag'.
In case you brush off the rantings of UFO fans, the handbag symbolism has also been given weighty considerations by historians.
An article posted on historical news portal Ancient Origins had debated the use of the handbag as a cosmological symbol in a news report published in January this year,
The Youtube posting ended with an open-ended question to readers.
‘How did this handbag symbol become a world wide phenomenon? And more importantly, what did it represent? Did it contain secret knowledge offered by the gods as some myths claim? Was it some form of secret technology that we have forgotten?’
