Artifacts of Live
Dinosaurs, some interacting with Humans
INCA BURIAL STONES
Dr. Javier Cabrera (above left with Geologist, Dr. Don Patton) was professor of medicine and head of his department at the University of Lima. He has retired from that position and is presently the Cultural Anthropologist for Ica, Peru. In the early 1930's, his father found many of these ceremonial burial stones in area's numerous Inca tombs. Dr. Cabrera has continued his father's research and has collected over 1100 of them. Approximately one third depict the pornographic culture of the Incas, graphically portrayed in the artifacts of that period (c.a. 500-1500 AD). Some picture their idolatry (#5 below), other represent amazing accomplishments, such as successful brain surgery (#4 below) confirmed by scarred skulls which demonstrate healed recovery.
Almost one third of the stones depict specific types of dinosaurs, like Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Pterosaurs. Several diplodocus-like dinosaurs have what appear to be dermal frills . Confirmation of these features has been reported only recently (Geology, 12/1992, v.20, No.12, p.1068-1070). We asked Dr. Patton if he could share some additional information with us about these stones that may help to demonstrate their authenticity. He shared with us the following information in an e-mail:
1. The OJO, Lima Domingo, a major newspaper in Lima, documented a Spanish Priest who described engraved stones with strange animals in the area of Ica in 1525.
2. Chronicler of the Incas, Juan de Santa Cruz Pachachuti Llamgui wrote of the engraved stones in 1570. He also records Conquistadors taking some stones back to Spain.
3. Spanish aristocrat, Bolivia Cabera began collecting stones from the fields of his own plantation in 1930. They are presently in the Cabrea Museum.
4. His son, Dr. Javier
Cabrera continued collection (11,000 pieces). Retired
Professor and Head of Dep. Of Medicine at Univ. of Lima.
5. Carlos SoldĂ¨, Rector of University of Ingemena-Lima excavated similar stones at village of Ocucaje in 1950's.
6. Brother Pablo SoldĂ donated stones to Museum of Ica upon Carlosâ death in 1968.
7. Museum Of Ica denied existence of the SoldĂ stones, then admitted possession, then promised access, then refused permission.
8. Bacilleo Achua excavated many of the stones from tombs in the area of the village of Ocucaje.
9. Willie Munozy and his wife Sosa Cespedes De Munozy have excavated many similar stones from tombs in the Nazca area.
10. Dr. Don Patton and Dr. Dennis Swift observed stones in Nazca tombs.
11. Professor Frenchen at the University of Bonn (Germany) confirmed an oxidized patina on the andesite stones, indicating significant age.
12. Details of dinosaur anatomy are depicted that were only recently discovered by modern paleontologists.
