- Dr. Javier Cabrera succumbed to a long bout with cancer
on December 30, 2001.
- Born 1924 in the beautiful coastal city of Ica Peru,
he was the direct descendant of the noble Spaniard Captain Don Geronimo
Luis de Cabrera y Toledo, who founded Ica in 1563. A physician and head
of the Preventive Medicine Department of the Felix Torrealva Gutierrex
hospital, Dr. Cabrera founded the medical school of Ica National University,
and was awarded "Favorite Son of Ica City," in 1988.
- For more then 40 years, Javier Cabrera studied the Engraved
Stones of Ica collecting more then 11,000 stones from the parched Peruvian
desert for his private museum. Decoding the message of the stones became
his life's work. Although his theories flew in the face of modern archaeology,
the doctor never failed to share his findings with interested parties,
and opened his museum to the public.
- This highly enigmatic collection depicts an ancient,
unknown humanity, which the doctor termed "gliptolithic man."
Shown are medical procedures including organ transplants, anesthesia, and
different types of surgery. Astronomy and the geography of the hemispheres
of ancient earth were shown including the arrangement of ancient (lost)
continents. Journeys through space were detailed along with descriptions
of the Pampa de Nasca (Nazca Lines) as a spaceport. Simple activities of
daily life tell of ancient man living concurrent with the dinosaur.
- About the authenticity of the stones, NASA scientist,
Josef F. Blumrich (who developed the designed the Saturn V rocket and participated
in the design of Skylab) remarked, " I am deeply impressed by what
I have seen here, and I am happy to have found so much direct evidence
of what I began to feel and understand before. There is not doubt in my
mind about the authenticity of these stones." - April 29, 1974
- Considered a courageous, dignified, and thoughtful man
by those who knew him, Dr. Cabrera never wavered in his belief that one
day the world would come to understand, perhaps even accept, the ancient
message of the stones.
- His three children survive him.
- The Ica Stones museum remains open to visitors by appointment;
- a partial photo gallery of the Stone Collection can be
