Thursday, June 8 – Regional Museum Ica with the coneheads plus a visit to Maria Reiche Museum and with a bus to Nasca. Walk on the Cerro blanco.
The museum with the coneheads was fascinating to connect with. Arthur and Pieter went in first to screen the energies their. See more information hereunder.
We than went to the Maria Reiche Museum as well. It was her funeral date and in honor of her service some members gathered in this remembrance.

Maria Reiche was born 15 May 1903, in Dresden. She studied mathematics, astronomy, geography and foreign languages at the Dresden Technical University.
In 1932, she began work as a nanny and teacher for the children of a German consul in Cuzco, Peru. In 1934, she lost one of her fingers to gangrene. That same year, she became a teacher in Lima and made scientific translations, as she spoke five languages. When World Ward II broke out, German citizens were detained in Peru.
In 1940, Reiche became an assistant to the American Paul Kosok, an historian from Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York. Making field studies from 1939–1941 and 1948–49, Kosok is credited as the first Westerner of European descent to seriously investigate the Nazca Lines. He originally studied them in connection with field work on ancient irrigation systems, but quickly concluded they had another purpose.
He noticed lines that converged at the point of the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere in June 1941. Together he and Reiche began to map and assess the lines for their relation to astronomical events. Later Reiche found lines converging at the summer solstice. Around 1946, Reiche began to map the figures represented by the Nazca Lines and determined there were 18 different kinds of animals and birds. After Kosok left in 1948, she continued the work and mapped the area. She used her background as a mathematician to analyze how the Nazca may have created such huge-scale figures. She found these to have a mathematical precision that was highly sophisticated. Reiche theorized that the builders of the lines used them as a sun calendar and an observatory for astronomical cycles.
Because the lines can be best seen from above, she persuaded the Peruvian Air Force to help her make aerial photographic surveys. She worked alone from her home in Nazca. Reiche published her theories in the book The Mystery on the Desert (1949, reprint 1968), which had a mixed response from scholars. Eventually scholars concluded that the lines were not chiefly for astronomical purposes, but Reiche’s and Kosok’s work had brought scholarly attention to the great resource. It is widely believed that they were used as part of worship and religious ceremonies related to the “calling of water from the gods.”
Reiche used the profits from the book to campaign for preservation of the Nazca desert and to hire guards for the property and assistants for her work. Wanting to preserve the Nazca Lines from encroaching traffic, after one figure was cut through by the Pan American Highway government development, Reiche spent considerable money in the effort to lobby and educate officials and the public about the lines. After paying for private security, she convinced the government to restrict public access to the area. She sponsored construction of a tower near the highway so that visitors could have an overview of the lines to appreciate them without damaging them.
In 1977, Reiche became a founding member of South American Explorers, a non-profit travel, scientific and educational organization. She was on the organization’s advisory board and was interviewed for the South American Explorer on the lines’ significance and importance.
Reiche’s health deteriorated as she aged. She used a wheelchair, suffered from skin ailments, and lost her sight. In her later years, she also suffered from Parkinson’s disease. Maria Reiche died of ovarian cancer on 8 June 1998, in an Air Force Hospital in Lima. Reiche was buried with her sister near Nazca with official honors.
It was a honor and with due respect to visit this area for someone who had placed herself in the service of Universal Consciousness.
We than went for a walk on the Cerro blanco with the group.
A small group of us walked at a slower pace on these Sacred Grounds. It felt good to feel and see the surroundings. From our Purest Heart Love Light we connected to the Great Mother Nature in this area. Amazed at the Elephant structures of some of the Mountains we sat some minutes in Silence and Gratitude. The other ground connected at a higher level in the surroundings as well.
After this we went back to the Hotel in the Oase Huacachina.

Ica Regional Museum
It can be a challenge to make sense of the many civilizations that have cycled through the southern Peruvian desert, but the Regional Museum of Ica, Peru can help you make sense of it all.
As you enter into the museum, you’ll take a walk through the ages – quite literally. The museum is designed to take you from one era to the next, and there are large signs indicating exactly what age range you are looking at. You’ll start with the hunters and gatherers many thousands of years ago and slowly work your way through the millennia.
The Regional Museum of Ica has some of the best ancient pottery I’ve ever seen, along with textiles in extraordinarily good shape. The dryness of the desert in the region has contributed to the various artifacts being so well preserved.
The other, perhaps even more fascinating, section of the museum features mummies, skulls, and other human remains. The mummies are in remarkably good shape, and there are several of them on display. There is also evidence of some type of medical affliction that affected the population.
But perhaps the most puzzling of the artifacts are the coneheads with elongated skulls. The traditional explanation for the elongation is banding – tightly wrapping the heads of babies in order to force a deformation of the skull. On several of the skulls you can clearly see the marks of the bands.
Other skulls, however, appear to be elongated naturally. They are perfectly smooth and show no evidence of having been banded. There are (unsubstantiated) reports that a pregnant mummy has been found and x-rays indicate the fetus has an elongated skull.
Ica is about 200 miles south of Lima. Buses leave Lima every 15 minutes and take four hours to get to Ica. The Regional Museum of Ica is easily reached from anywhere in town.

Visit Regional Museum of Ica, a large museum that houses artifacts ranging from prehistoric to the colonial era. Situated just outside the city center, the museum is renowned for its archeological items belonging to the Paracas and Nazcas, two Peruvian pre-Incan cultures. Step back in time and view ancient pottery, textiles, musical instruments, and weapons. The pre-Incan exhibit also boasts an impressive collection of mummies and human remains, some having mysterious deformed and elongated skulls. Follow the chronologically ordered exhibits to view furniture, paintings, and other artifacts from the colonial time period.

Cerro Blanco information
Location Nazca & Around, Peru
Stand down all other pretenders. Cerro Blanco, 14km east of Nazca, is the highest sand dune in the world: 2078m above sea level and – more importantly – 1176m from base to summit, that’s higher than the tallest mountain in England and numerous other countries. If Huacachina’s sand didn’t irrevocably ruin your underwear, this could be your bag.
Due to the dune’s height and steepness it’s best to organize an excursion from Nazca. Trips leave at about 4am to avoid the intense heat. The arduous climb to the top of the dune (buggies can’t climb this behemoth) takes approximately three hours. Going down is counted more in minutes with some clear runs of up to 800m.
