They are not aliens. According to forensic specialists in Peru, two doll-like figurines and a purported three-fingered hand that were taken from a shipment bound for Mexico by the country’s customs officials last year are what they reported on Friday.
According to the forensic specialists working for Peru’s prosecutor’s office, the items were created using metal, paper, glue, and both human and animal bones.
The results dispel some people’s myths about the figurines’ origins, according to forensic archaeologist Flavio Estrada, who oversaw the investigation. “They come from an alien center or come from another planet, all of which is totally false.”
“The conclusion is simple: they are dolls assembled with bones of animals from this planet, with modern synthetic glues, therefore they were not assembled during pre-Hispanic times,” Estrada told reporters. “They are not extraterrestrials; they are not aliens.”
Who owns the items has not yet been established by the prosecutor’s office. Only that a Mexican citizen was the intended recipient of the items prior to their seizure by customs officers in October was disclosed by officials on Friday.
When José Jaime Maussan, a journalist from Mexico, appeared before the nation’s congress in September and showed two boxes containing purported mummies discovered in Peru, he and a few MPs from Mexico were mocked throughout the world.
They are “non-human beings that are not part of our terrestrial evolution,” he and others stated.
Together with a group of medical professionals from Peru, Maussan came to Mexico’s congress in November and spent more than three hours advocating for the “non-human beings” he claimed to have discovered in Peru—he had made similar claims there in 2017. In actuality, the purported extraterrestrial bodies were “recently manufactured dolls, which have been covered with a mixture of paper and synthetic glue to simulate the presence of skin,” according to a report from the Peruvian prosecutor’s office that year.
“They are not the remains of ancestral aliens that they have tried to present,” the 2017 report stated.
On Friday, experts displayed two 2-foot-long dolls to reporters, clothed in green, orange, and red clothing. They said that tests revealed the dolls were made from the bones of dogs, birds, and other creatures.
Meanwhile, a claimed three-finger hand was subjected to X-ray testing. Estrada said that human bones were used to make the “very poorly” manufactured hand.
