• Since its discovery in the 1920s, scientists and visitors have been drawn to the geoglyphs known as the “Nazca Lines” in Peru covering about 500 square kilometres and dating back 1,000 years. The site’s origins have intrigued archaeologists for years, with some claiming they are linked to UFOs or aliens.
• Researchers from Japan’s University of Yamagata studied the Nazca area from 2016 to 2018. Using artificial intelligence technology to process high-resolution aerial photos at high speeds, the researchers say they have identified 142 new geoglyphs. They include depictions of fish, birds, llamas, snakes, monkeys, and a human-like figure holding a stick. The figures vary in size, with the largest more than 100 metres (328 feet) from end to end – slightly taller than the Statue of Liberty. The smallest ones measures only five metres. Most are in poor condition. University researchers say that the geoglyphs were probably created between 100BC and 300AD and were used for rituals and decoration.
Artificial intelligence has helped identify more than 100 ancient sand drawings at the famous Nazca Lines site in Peru.
The collection of mysterious earth sketches – known as geoglyphs – in Peru’s central desert has drawn scientists and visitors for decades since its discovery in the 1920s.
Best viewed from the air, the Nazca Lines covers an area of about 500 square kilometres and dates back 1,000 years. The site’s origins have intrigued archaeologists for years, with some commentators claiming they are linked to UFOs or aliens.
Now researchers from Japan’s University of Yamagata say they have identified 142 new geoglyphs with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
They include depictions of animals, such as snakes and monkeys, and a human-like figure holding a stick.
The university said in a statement they geoglyphs were probably created between 100BC and 300AD, and most are in poor condition.

In the image above I’m trying to measure ionizing radiation in from of the largest mummy “María.” It had to be done but the test gave a negative result. The door has been sealed for protection.
On November 6, 2019, at the Universidad Nacional San Luis Gonzaga during the VI International Research Congress (VI Congreso Internacional de Investigación) the scientists Galeckii Dimitri from Russia, José the la Cruz Ríos from Mexico, explorer-anthropologist Thierry Jamin and investigative reporter Mr. Jaime Maussan gave information about the 3-finger Nazca-Palpa mummies and some new findings were presented.
Besides previous information that the genetic tests revealed that María the largest mummy coincided genetically with homo sapiens by about 25% and the smaller specimens by about 15%, the vertebrae of the smaller specimens in the neck were said to be cylindrical which would have permitted the specimen to rotate its head beyond human range.
One of the tomographic images appeared to show a grape seed or similar in the intestines.
As had been previously mentioned histological analysis showed that the skin in both the large specimen and the smaller ones appeared to be that of a reptile.
Mr. Maussan was thankful to the people of GAIA -TV recognizing that without their auspices they would not have been able to carry out several genetic tests.
Vice-Rector of Research Dr. Martin Alarcón Quispe mentioned that keeping the bodies in the university and promoting their research could benefit the university which could become a hotbed to generate future researchers. He invited new scientists including those of the Ministry of Culture that had opposed. He also mentioned that he had been threatened. Some archaeology students loudly opposed during part of the presentation but I think that the scientific reasons which they presented could have been easily answered.
Unfortunately, the one Peruvian reporter most seriously dedicated to covering the news, Mr. Jois Mantilla announced that he would retire from covering this case to have more time for his paying work and family.
The mummies that the university is protecting (and for which it is coordinating further research with a new team of scientists) were shown to attendees, in spite of previous attempts by the Ministry of Culture to confiscate them.
The researchers associated with the Maussan-Gaia TV team were happy to have done their best to research these mummies.
I interviewed in English and Spanish Mexican biologist José de la Cruz Ríos López and the Vice-rector of the university Dr. Martin Alarcón Quispe. With another interpreter, I interviewed Dr. Galetckii Dimitri. And I interviewed in English-only Dr. Robert E. Farrel who was attending this Congress. Mr. Jaime Maussan was interviewed in English-only by Freedom Press News.
OCTOBER 20, 2019. A national or public university in Peru has taken custody of some of the three-finger Palpa-Nazca “mummies” and promises not only to eventually exhibit them to the public but to promote their RESEARCH, open to adequate, honest and accredited national and international scientists.
This University is the “Universidad Nacional San Luis Gonzaga” (abbreviated as “UNICA” and colloquially known as “Universidad de Ica” because it is located in the Department of Ica, a region where the Nazca Geoglyphs, the Palpa Geoglyphs, the Paracas skulls, the Chincha Culture and other archeological remnants are located).
In spite of opposition from some archaeologists and media reporters, who even went to this university to prevent such a decision, this university has opted for the scientifically correct path. The Vice-Rectorof researchDr. Martin Alarcón wants to investigate. This is the correct scientific attitude.
On November 6th, 2019 there will be a press conference to officially announce this decision by the university.
Mr. Jaime Maussan and Peruvian reporter Jois Mantilla (perhaps the only major Peruvian reporter covering this important development) declare that GAIA TV will not control the research process.
According to biologist José de la Cruz Ríos López, new tomographies have confirmed the presence of internal organs and Inkari Institute lead by Thierry Jamin sent teguments and bones to an institute in Paris. Spectrometry was conducted revealing tissue that once belonged to living beings showing a natural biochemistry instead of any evidence that the bodies studied in France had been artificially assembled with modern substances. The analysis liberated water showing that there still was some natural fat content.
Mr. Jaime Maussan invites once again the participation of skeptical scientists and even the scientists that rejected the possible findings and investigations from the start. Quite likely, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov from Russia (said to have clear images of embryos inside eggs in one of the specimens) will come to Perú to participate along with other Russian scientists.
Further News: The New GEOGLYPH
Recently the discovery of a large three-finger geoglyph in the Atacama Desert in Chile, has taken place. It seems to depict one of the smaller (60cm long) three-finger “mummies” found in the Palpa – Nazca area. I learned about this news in the beginning of October, 2019. To me, it looks genuine but – of course – experts should study it. The geoglyph also has a sphere above the left shoulder.
“A Tridactyle Geoglyph (25 meters length approx.) was found in the north of Chile, which represents a humanoid being with three fingers very similar to the so-called “Mummies of Nasca”. The presence of this geoglyph adds to the long list of archaeological evidence that supports the existence of these beings on the South American coast. Similar representations have been previously found in cave paintings, ceramics, looms and petroglyphs from different Peruvian cultures. In addition, this discovery could establish a link between Chilean geoglyphs and the so-called Nasca Lines.” (Report by Peruvian researcher Eng. Alex Sender). Courtesy: FICCV CHILE.
From the FICCV web site: “The International Foundation for Culture and Life Sciences is pleased to share the present material that corresponds to a tridactyl humanoid-looking geoglyph very similar to those publicly known as “The Mummies of Nasca” in Peru, in this case just over 800 kms (from Nazca-Palpa) in the commune of Huara, Tarapacá region of Chile.
FICCV is a non-profit foundation and has been created six months ago and with limited resources has managed to find this unique geoglyph in the world of a tridactyl humanoid being known to date, we share it as a grain of sand in support of all who have been investigating the well-known mummies of Nasca. We also invite you to watch the video published in the CSF Television section.” (Translation with Google Translate) https://www.ficcv.info/

The following image was highlighted by biologist José de la Cruz Ríos López.
One of the feet shows a 90-degree angle similar to the feet in the larger three-finger “mummy” called “María.” If María and the 60 cm entities are genuine could the former be a hybrid between a human and the smaller 60 cm beings that have more significant reptilian characteristics?
Left side tomography of María
OCTOBER 25, 2019
There was an irregular, sudden incursion of archaeologists associated with the Ministry of Culture and local representatives of this ministry accompanied by 8 policemen trying to have access to the room where the mummies are being kept inside the university. They wanted to confiscate the 3-finger Nazca bodies (including the large mummy “María”) but could not because the person with the keys was not available. This move may have been illegal because there was no previous notification and the university has its own autonomy and rights.
The people doing this give the public impression that they want to do it because they are sure that the case of the three-finger mummies involves the illicit use of prehispanic bodies and animals. But the other impression which they give is that they do not want to give an opportunity for a scientific institution to conduct formal, careful research in Perú. Is it prejudice? A lack of mental flexibility? A defense of what they believe is the spoilage of national heritage to commit fraud? Or is it jealousy that they didn’t make the discovery under conventional circumstances? All of the above?
Since the beginning, the Ministry of Culture and associated scientists were invited in person and in writing many times when the three-finger bodies came to light but they either didn’t reply or were convinced from the beginning that the bodies were fake. Most of their objections have been answered by the scientists that (unlike them) studied the most important samples up close.
The individuals trying to take the specimens away may return to the university during the weekend or on Monday 28 in order to try to confiscate the remains.
Major local news services tend to side with the conventional position and do not seem to understand the importance of what such a discovery may be or to care about it besides their need to occasionally cover the news for ratings. The skeptic side seems to get more air time repeatedly.
Reporter Jois Mantilla is one of the few reporters that cares and is trying to do something about this. Other scientists quietly researching the “mummies” (even if convinced that at least some mummies can be genuine) still do not want their names to be known. New genetic results and other new results (due to tests performed after the person who found the bodies surrendered them to the university) were going to be revealed. I hope that they are revealed ASAP to show that confiscating the bodies would be a big mistake.
