An elongated, three fingered hand has apparently been found in Peru, & subjected to scrutiny by a medical doctor. The fingernails are very evident, & x-rays taken show the presence of bones below the white skin.

Would anyone have either more information on this, or any opinion as to what it could be? It's being touted as an "alien hand" & has been reported by Brian Foerster, among others. The video is in Spanish, but there are subtitle for those who need them.

yes, only ten minutes of video...
Thanks OP for something interesting!
I am hoping to get the doctor's name, though to see if he are on the internet.

These guys are turning into a busy hub for fake finds. Reminds me of the cottage industry in 'Ica stones' from South America.

They did another video like this last year. A few guys sitting in a kitchen with some gaff that would change the world. One of them wears a white lab-coat and face mask to look like a genuine medical professional. Same as here with some $5 words tossed in to make some people believe this is anything but a deliberate hoax.

What is it? I imagine it's made of papier-mache covering a home-made skeletal-looking structure with five joints so it looks extra alien. Takes me back to college art classes.


For sake of argument, let's say it really is some 'mummified' artefact? They've lost its provenance so real archaeologists wouldn't be able to locate the rest of it. They wouldn't be able to study the layers of earth it was found in or dig in the area for associated artefacts or evidence of occupation. The way it's being handled would make DNA analysis almost pointless because its covered in theirs and whatever chicken fajitas they had for lunch.

Some people will be thinking, "Sure, it could happen. Science doesn't want us to know the truth." The thing is, these guys are showing up with alien body parts every damn year. It never stops. What are the odds that only they keep stumbling on open graves and discovering a full museum's worth of unique materials? The frequency alone points to a hoax factory and, if anything they've found is genuine, it's hoarded in a back street collection and no use to anyone.

The guys who do all this are tour operators and they depend on demand to sell tickets and put food on tables. These fascinating finds generate the demand and keep the business going. Is it fair on the people who pay a lot of money to see this stuff? Who knows? I guess some of them only want that Indiana Jones experience of handling *rare* artefacts.

Not sure of the validity of this site, but here is a link about the hand...
link
from the link,

Even though no independent tests have been performed on the curious ‘alien claw’ yet, the team in charge of the finding believes that radiocarbon and DNA testing will reveal the true origin of the mysterious hand.

fake or a mystery...?

Even though many would easily jump ahead and call it a fake; the enigmatic ‘alien claw’ was discovered together with a smaller, mummified elongated skull in Cusco Peru and initial X-ray tests show both artifacts as being genuine.

Not trying to hi-jack your thread OP, I hope you see this as helpful...

Thanks for that x-ray shot


It actually looks like they might have used genuine bones in there. The commitment! There's no shortage of bones for these guys and they don't shy away from digging them up either.

I'm not a doctor or an anatomy professor , but do those "bones" in the "wrist" section even make sense?

Lol, the commitment!
whether it is real or not, it seems some folks are involved with this hand, i just looked up the Inkari Cusco Institute,link, that this link says they are studying it...link...and yes, behind it all could very well be, Brien Foerster, a tour guide
Well, i have done my best.

Oh I saw this somewhere previously, and it was some sort of animal hand. I think it was a sloth.

Not in the slightest! Looks like they set up the fingers using real 'phalanges' and thought "Righto. Job done!"

Mr Foerster is a busy bee indeed. He's like a modern day Barnum

LoL thats kind of what I thought was well......im looking at those fragments going......ok......and those function how? where do the ligaments attach? how does that facilitate movement?

Youre right........lol

"Hey Mike, you done with that hand yet?"

"Yeah almost im fixing up the lower part now, have a few more pieces of these squirrel legs though not sure what to do"

"Dudes we gotta be at Billy Bobs in 20 min, he just got a new potato gun, wrap it up! We still gotta stop and get some canned cheese and and pre wrapped sausages for the appetizers tonight.......lets GOOOOOOOOOO"

Exactly!!


This stuff used to get my blood up - hoaxing and ripping people off. Nowadays it's more like a part of life that's always been around. Hustlers hustling.


How can we not smile at the 'Doctor' sitting there in his whites with the costume mask on? Do they even blush to be acting like that? Do they have a few shots between filming? It's theatre, right?!

I'm no boneologist (or are I?), but those things don't even form proper socket joints. The middle finger in particular.

I'm thinking it's some sort of decomposed (or manipulated for a hoax) foot from a waterfowl. Here is the skeleton of a duck's foot, just for reference:

And this is another bird's foot:

Thank you, I do see it as being helpful! I wanted other opinions, & yours is an actual opinion, not a smart-aleck jeer, thanks again!
