Peace? No peace

I spotted this alien craft in Tuscany last July (click it to enlarge). It reminds me of a scene from the movie "Independence Day":

PRESIDENT
Where do your people come from?
(no answer)
Where is your home?

ALIEN
Here...now.

PRESIDENT
And before here?

ALIEN
Many worlds...

PRESIDENT
Can we negotiate a truce? is
there room for co-existance?
(no answer)
Can there be peace between us?

ALIEN
Peace? No peace.

Hey, I like this! It looks organic somehow, very insect/bird-like. Good job!

the president of Italy?

why do alien invaders always go to washington these days? if i were seeking to take over the earth I would be happy to start with Tuscany. Acrtually I would settle for a villa, with access to a car, a nice garden, a view of the hills.

Hi Ellis, Christmas Eve and the Solstice here in Japan. There seem to be coincidences linking some of my everyday to your drawing. The 17th december one appeared to correspond to some of the lyrics on one of the toons in Ziggy Stardust (so your psyche may be clad in platforms and sequins), this is an album my Kids have just discovered and I was listening to it while doing my daily doo. Independence day appeared at exactly the point you chose to recall on my TV at lunchtime on the day you put your drawing up. I think I should be off and take my existential detective license.
