hi bernardo, all
thank you for posting these
images. i assume they are all ceramics found associated with the tiwanaku
culture of bolivia. they are very interesting, and i encourage you to
continue to post any images that you find.
i have some specific comments
image 1 - note the elongated
ears, similar to the lobes of ancient india, but these were a result of
suspending heavy ear-spools or ornaments, since the piercing can be seen.
please examine these closely, if you
can, to determine if they have any 'potter's marks', as cabeza had. are
they in a museum in bolivia?
image 4, and 7, seem to represent man
with a tail. such a race did exist in very ancient times, as proven by the
vestige of a former tail that we humans still possess. besides, cayce said
a civilized race of men with tails lived in the sahara 10 million years
ago. its possible that this appendage did remain longer in other
areas. if its not a fanciful representation it indicates these are very
image 8 is perhaps the most important
of the lot. it seems to have writing on it. its very worn and faint,
but under magnification and other means it may yield some readable script.
image 9 represents a species that i
cannot identify. bernardo, do you recognize this creature as a species
still found in the andes? it may be extinct. we may need to
submit this image to an expert to determine what species is represented.
image 10 is another
creature that we need to try to identify. the projection upon the
nose should help decide the species.
bernardo, when you first brought our
attention to the great oracle bowl [fuente magna], you said there were other
bowls and relics remaing where it was obtained. can you give us an update
upon this? these are very important, and must be rescued and
