“Skeleton of Giant” Is Internet Photo Hoax

And here is the explanation from NGC.

The image was lifted from Worth1000, a Web site that hosts contests for digital artists. Created by an artist using the alias IronKite, the picture placed third in a 2002 competition titled “Archaeological Anomalies 2,” which asked contestants to “create a hoax archaeological discovery.”

“I laugh myself silly when some guy claims to know someone who was there, or even goes so far as to claim that he or she was there when they found the skeleton and took the picture,” IronKite said.
