I have thought about these images that are from
many of the earliest and first human civilizations,
and noticed a few things that can be concluded.

The images in stones, carvings are the only ones to
survive from so long ago, many 1000's of years, back
to Gobekli Tepe and before. Carvings of this detail
and quality indicate the people that created them
were recording an important event from their life.

Encounters with important people or amazing
events or unexpected visitors would be the kind
of thing to put down in carving, for in the future it
can be viewed and understood, and the message
from the past can be appreciated. These are not
simple lists or records but depictions of important
events.

The Snake encircling the man with the
bag/pinecone is a flying ship. Pacal's tombstone
has the same type of depiction. The wings and
bird head and bird leg indicate travelers who
come in with the wind.

The pinecone is always held forwards in offering,
something valuable, so these carvings show visitors
with something important. The bag is the icing on
the cake - full of strange and wonderful knowledge
and things that we can only imagine what it is
about.

I wonder how a sailing ship would look to people who had never conceived of them?

That, and if an ancient sea faring people shared the tendency of later bronze aged cultures, and liked carving serpent faces onto the front of their ships.

Then you have a flying serpent. Kind of. I mean, it doesn't really fly, but it certainly has wings (sails).

I could take this also to suggest sea traders showing up, and trading for pine cones. Or maybe pine apples.

If they traveled everywhere, there would be quirks from their culture getting remembered in art. Like their goofy looking man bags, or the sundials on their wrist.

The main technology that defined the colonial era wasn't gun powder. It was oceanic sailing.

Or better yet: imagine if the colonial era powers had the ships, but not the guns? Instead of conquering everybody, they would carry out a less invasive interaction. Trade, and share knowledge.
