I found this article about a giant crown found by Father Crespi in a cave name "Cueva de los Tayos"
Its this the only photo of this crown? Please share your thoughts.

A CROWN FIT FOR A GIANT? Italian Father Carlo Crespi Croci (1891-1982) tries on a Giant kings crown he found in the cave named "Cueva de los Tayos" Ecuador. He wasn't just a priest but a researcher and explorer also. This is just one many ancient artifacts he found after arriving in Ecuador in 1927. His collection was called the "metal library." Many of these ancient artifacts were made of various metals, unusual for a very ancient time period. After his death some of his most important artifacts were stolen or were lost. He was beatified by the Catholic Church for having lived 60 years as a missionary. He believed all his findings were "antediluvian" origin. With the most recent metal findings in ancient cities its obvious there is more to Earths history than what we are being taught and told. Source: CROWN FIT FOR A GIANT

Interesting find, looking forward to hear what others have to say. Seems "Giants" are being mentioned a bit more lately

Links and Google led me to this 18 page PDF stated as being authored in 1998, just skimming through it now, seems interesting... Sorry it's a PDF

Ahh something the Smithsonian did not get there hands on, in fairness I have seen this before and am not entirely convinced it was meant as a crown but it does look like one, it could also have been made for a statue though there are reports even from early spanish conquerers of giant's in the amazon and of cours all tribes and cultures around the world share a belief in Giant's.

here maybe this might shed some light, enjoy and don't be fooled again.


SPIEGEL: In Cuenca, you showed him the collection of Father Crespi. Did you not warn him of the many fake pieces? MÓRICZ: Yes, we had told him that although Crespi had previously collected much of value, today the genuine pieces are buried under a cacophony of crap. Most of the two rooms are stuffed to the ceiling with sheet metal. Nevertheless Däniken wanted to photograph everything. He went crazy. From ten in the morning until three in the afternoon, he took pictures, and I think it’s not just the genuine pieces that he has shown in his book.


Von Däniken would later accuse Móricz of lying to discredit him. But that wasn’t all. The previous year, in 1972, Der Spiegel had reported that a scholar named Dr. Hartmann had viewed the artifacts and determined that while there were a few genuine pre-Hispanic stone pieces, most of the metal ones were forgeries made from tin and brass, including a large number of tourist trinkets. Anton Graf Preising concurred that there were a few valuable items among the mounds of forgeries. Danish archaeologist Olaf Holm said that the elderly Crespi wasn’t able to tell tin from silver, or brass from gold.

That crown probably adorned a larger than life statue. Either that or the priest is a schister.

He's been exposed as such, don't have time this morning to dig. Theres been threads on him here I think.

That's interesting. But I can't help but think that if i were a giant king and someone made me that flimsy a$$ crown, there's be some bone crunching going on - soon.
JMO, thanks.

Most likely it is not crown but a base for something. Crowns are much more ornate and shaped to fit a head correctly. this one obviously is neither.

Father Crespi manufactured fakes throughout his life
This is like saying "Von Daniken has found proof of Aliens"
i.e. its complete and utter nonsense

Yes once Van Doniken get's mentioned as being connected to it, the brain seems to get the feeling it's not exactly what they say it is.

It was Von Daniken who introduced Crespi's collection to the world in "Gold of the Gods", an account that he later admitted was fabrictaed. Crespi's frauds are so well known, that to take him seriously, you have to be lobotomised or self deluded like the OP

There is no reason why this couldn't have just been a decorative piece.
If we found tiny chairs from the past we wouldn't assume that tiny humans built them would we?

That seemed a little harsh?

Did a quick search on Fr.Crespi and this article raises more questions, like tentacles. I'll be the first to admit Im not up on every archeological dig but...

This is quite an assertion and one I've never come across before.


Across South America, there is clear evidence that metal was used, in important centers like Tiahuanaco, on the shores of Lake Titicaca (Bolivia). It comes in the form of small clamps, about six inches across, which are made from copper-base alloy, with some iron. The clamps can be seen as indentations in the stones and were meant to hold these even firmer together. However, none of these clamps will be found in museums; some are in the “private collection” of the participating archaeologists who, when challenged, nevertheless are willing to produce them.
One of the experts is Professor Javier F. Escalante Moscoso. He is clear that the people of Tiahuanaco and nearby Puma Punku had metal tools and were adept at metallurgy. He wrote: “Copper was the main native metal commonly used; but, being a soft metal its use was limited at first to the manufacture of personal or domestic objects. Later, tin was introduced to obtain bronze.” Some clamps unearthed at Tiahuanaca are up to six feet long, showing the level at which metallurgy was used.

Another closer to my own interest was this



Finally, in 1922, William A. Ferguson discovered a harbor on the north coast of Isle Royale. Ships could load and unload, aided by a pier that measured 500 meters in length. This suggests that the type of ships that anchored here, were large ships – and that there were many. The most likely explanation as to the purpose of this harbor was that they formed the point where the copper was loaded… to be transported to other regions. The presence of the harbor further shows that the people working the mines were not local, as the local Indians only used small canoes.


The article covers lot of supposed metallurgy in the new world, so not rambling here. Thanks to the OP for at least bringing something unusual to the forum, I also don't think that crown was meant for someone living, but parts of the collection "may" have been legit. I don't think we should be so fast to toss out the baby with the bathwater.
It's at least worth some discussion.

Yes once Van Doniken gets involved things go sideways, however, you have to give the man props because of his books most of us got interested in alternate theories to begin with!

He made things exciting, and all of a sudden what we'd been spoon-fed became questionable. (shocking back then)
Right or wong he lit a spark.
