On 16 September 1994, nearly 60 children at Ariel Primary School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe claimed to have witnessed the landing of an unidentified flying object (UFO) while on their morning break. The children, between the ages of five and 12, stated that they interacted with a creature that emerged from the UFO. This creature is believed to have been Mathos Pfumao.
Mathos Pfumao is Zimbabwe’s greatest Shona sculptor. Mysteriously vanishing from his home in the high density township of Highfield in 1957, Mathos has spent his existence under the commission of NEHANDA, the ancient Mhondoro spirit of Great Zimbabwe. His mission, to transmit the message of the ancients through sculptural codes. What those children witnessed on 16 September wasn’t an alien landing, but the descension of ancient spiritual beings.
