The pyramid is one of Klaus Dona's collection. If you haven't heard of him, he's something like a middle-man for the cottage industry in fake
artifacts. He acquires numerous objects that have no provenance beyond hearsay and therefore can't be checked out. So when I say middle-man, he could
be making them himself for all we know because the evidence trail usually ends with him.
But thus said, who would possibly be so brain-damaged to do such a ridicilous fake..
There's a market for this stuff that runs in tandem with the tourist scene in South America. The businesses tend to be owned by Europeans and
Americans and are located in Peru where the cost of living is quite cheap. They market the mysteries of S. America with 'lost trails' and 'hidden
mysteries' and some have private museums with crazy-looking 'alien' skulls behind glass cases.
The cost of living means it only takes a few tourists each year to finance a comfortable lifestyle. Not millionaire-rich; just the kind of money that
pays the bills and allows for some luxuries. The lifestyle needs customers and they have to hustle and work hard to draw them in.
There are the books, the YT channels, the websites and the tours that all work together to create a market. I wouldn't necessarily say that all of
them are hoaxers because I do believe a few are sincere in their 'ancient aliens' beliefs. Nevertheless, the actual bedrock of their business model is
one of deception and hustling.
