Incas Golden Model Of Universe, Koricancha Temple, Cuzco

Inside of main courtyeard, one could find a golden plate with images that represented the inca's vision of the cosmos, told by the chronicler Santa Cruz Pachacuti. In these drawings we can see the god Wiracocha, the Sun, the Moon, Venus, the Rainbow, the Lightning, a man and a woman, a tree and stars. Incas were not sertain about appearance of their main god Wiracocha, thus they have drawn some oval in order not to insult him...


other sizes: small medium original
