Tomb of weavers and musicians of the Chimu nobility (Peru)

Both figurines, carved in carob wood, hold flutes, have their faces stained with the vermilion color of cinnabar and a green patina of copper and probably represent musical deities. They were found in the main chamber of a 15th or 16th century tomb that contained the remains of four individuals of the Chimú-Inca elite who must have been musicians and weavers.

Dare to climb the Huayna Picchu, just behind Machu Picchu. From the summit, the real beauty of the Inca citadel is fully revealed, so it's worth the effort.

Museum of Site and Pachacamac Archaeological Sanctuary

This two-faced sculpture displays a Lambayeque-Chimu style (Regional Periods> 1000-1470 C.E.) but it was excavated in Pachacamac. The dark, round spaces on its headdress and its eyes were probably once filled with shell or mineral incrustations.

Sechín (culture)




Sechin is an archaeological culture of Ancient Peru that was developed in the central coast of the current Peruvian department of Ancash.





Cerro Sechin has been the subject of a very rigorous excavation and study. Two main buildings have been recognized, one made of clay and the other of stone. The one of mud or adobes, the oldest, shows remodeling in three phases, which have been dated between the years 2400 and 2300 a. C. That is, practically covering this mud structure, a stone building rises, whose most important feature is its facade of stone blocks decorated with reliefs, representing "warrior-priests" and mutilated bodies, which were considered offerings to the gods. This stone building was finished before the year 2000 a. C. but remained in use approximately until 1500 a. C. That is, it predates the Chavin culture.
