The mysteries of Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum in Ica, Peru

As I think back over our three years on the road, there were a lot of things we saw that intrigued me, but I never thought a bunch of rocks could capture my imagination so thoroughly. But then, I never thought I would see 20,000 extraordinary rocks intricately carved by some ancient civilization either.

The stones were obviously carved by an advanced society. They show many facets of life.

All it took was one quick look inside the door of Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum in Ica, Peru for me to want more. My curiosity had been piqued – what were all those carved stones anyway?

Fortunately, Dr. Cabrera’s daughter, Eugenio, willingly opened the museum to us and agreed to show us around. And what a tour it was! I will readily admit to having been ignorant on all matters surrounding the southern Peruvian mystery, so I hung onto her every word. Now I’m hooked and am fascinated by all the mysteries from the area – the famous Nazca Lines, the elongated conehead skulls, the mysterious wells in the desert… It’s all so fascinating and, well… mysterious.

The Museum

Dr. Cabrera’s Stone Museum is a small, private museum located on the Plaza de Armas in Ica, Peru about four hours south of Lima. It was started by Dr. Cabrera as an attempt to safeguard the many mysterious carved rocks found in the area. Dr. Cabrera died a few years ago, but his daughter now maintains the museum and passes on some her father’s wisdom.

  1. Well said, I could not agree more with you on this issue. I think your website is very popular on this topic judging by all the other comments posted to it. I just wanted to leave a comment to appreciate your hard work.

    • Dear Pett,

      People are catching on at a rapid rate. Is it part of the convergence of the paradoxes revealing that all the stories are true or is it just the fact that the pretexts are getting thinner and thinner? I think I have something to contribute and am very glad to hear that you found some value in what I have to offer.

      On the question of jobs, I think I have an apt solution; tell me what you think. Here’s the plan and it could be implemented virtually overnight. The public colleges would award everyone who is not currently so favored with a Ph. D., a chair in the Humanities of Science and Orderly Behavior and a stipend! Problem solved. People who think they aren’t ready to teach yet could apply for a full scholarship and the funds formerly used to blow up Iraqis could be used to support them at bare maximum standards of co-existence. The people who shine could correct all the errors in the Discovery Channel’s tapes and set the record straight. That would easily take more workers than we have on hand now and we might have to outsource to the Scholars down South of the Border and in the Hoovervilles of Mumbai and elsewhere. A friend of mine makes bicycles and he can easily train anyone who wants to fix bicycles and grant Ph.D.’s in Velology, Velocity and Transportation. There’s a new gadget that adds a little PV electric push to an ordinary bicycle so the Couch Potatoes can get back into shape by manageable degrees instead of heart-wrenching doses of extreme cycling uphill with savage, feral dogs in hot pursuit. I have plans to make miscellaneous buildings out of Styrowaste™ shipped in from The Orient and geopolymeric concrete paste which could serve as Community Freespaces™ for bike repair, creative construction, amenities and dignified housing for conscientious minimalists at no cost to the user and no charge to the Public Authority since all invoices would be sent to the Pentagon of Power where no appropriation has ever been denied.

      Can we be militantly peaceful? You have the answer. If we can train policemen to murder people in the streets, we can retrain them to help the elderly maintain their independence, keep the yard neat and the light bulbs changed. That shouldn’t be too difficult for professional people to learn. If we can train M.B.A.’s to steal from widows, orphans, homeowners and welfare graduates, we can retrain them to straighten out the mess their disease has caused in the economy. Proper diet, no stimulants, plenty of exercise, pure water and regular church attendance used to work pretty well; maybe we should consider going back to those old, nearly-abandoned ideas. The disease the culprits have contracted in our present education system has been identified as pathological self-augmentation and it’s a sort of curable mental cancer. There’s a book in the library that shows exactly what needs to be done to effect a cure (mostly herbal remedies and a pinch or two of time). The book is called God’s Hotel,’ by Victoria Sweet and if it isn’t in the Library, contact the Librarian and demand to know why. Gotta go.

      You are on the right track and I’ll do what I can to help.

      Best of everything,


    • / August 17th, 2007, 10:13 am / God is not responsible for death, only life.How convenient.I would rather believe in God and if nothing happens after I die, then nothing happens. But if I didn’t believe and have faith in God and it turns out I was wrong, it will be too late. But your belief does nothing to change the reality. Wouldn’t you rather have truth than comfort? Sorry, rhetorical question, since you made it clear you prefer comfort. Besides there is not one thing written in the Bible that makes life worse. Actually the bible is full of hate and barbarism. See for a sample. A loving god wouldn’t have inspired such manipulative and sadistic nonsense. And he certainly wouldn’t blame his children for thinking for themselves and demanding evidence of his existence. What is so bad about bringing comfort, and joy and giving a purpose and meaning to our short time here on earth? Nothing. This is what humanism attempts to do. Religion does the exact opposite. Praying is supposed to make a difference, but it doesn’t. People in church got squashed. Proof that god doesn’t care for or protect his own. He is utterly indifferent to human suffering and/or powerless to stop it. In people’s minds, he takes all the credit and gets none of the blame. Because he is a human construct an imaginary friend.

      • Dear Emanul,

        Strongly held opinions are more important than facts, sometimes. —S.E. Brydges, Bart.

        First and foremost, I believe that God is ineffable. That said, our judgements can only be guesses in the face of a Great Mystery and must be seen as the triumph of curiosity over confusion. What I can see of His work, gives me confidence in what I cannot see. Try it.

        Best wishes,


  2. Stumbled into this site by chance but I’m certain glad I clicked on that link. You genuinely answered all of the questions I’ve been dying to answer for some time now. Will genuinely occur back for additional of this. Thank you so much.

    • Why is anyone takling about pathetic failure of religous beliefs? You might as well wallow in the dirt like some ignorant savages. The time for being controlled slaves is 100 years ago. So not fall victim to magic and bullshit.No-religion is the one defining thing that the red communists got correct!

      • Dear Mitsumi,

        I must agree with your premise because I have stated it myself. But, [wait for it] what do you propose? I don’t see a positive direction in your plea for sanity. Help us all by making a proposal that we can join with and propagate.

        God is love.


  3. elayna / August 16th, 2007, 10:30 pm / God is not responsible for death, only life. No one can hold Him responsible, for everyone who is blessed with life, will some day die. That is undeniable. I pray for the multitude of people as yourself, that deny God and live only for this world. I would rather believe in God and if nothing happens after I die, then nothing happens. But if I didn’t believe and have faith in God and it turns out I was wrong, it will be too late. That is a chance I am not willing to take. Besides there is not one thing written in the Bible that makes life worse. What is so bad about bringing comfort, and joy and giving a purpose and meaning to our short time here on earth?
