Sculptor Carves Ancient Andean Gods Into Peruvian Mountain

Peru is famous for its rich archeological sites including, the Macchu Picchu and Incan ruins. Michael de Titan, a sculptor from Cusco, has decided to carry on the Incan tradition of combining art and nature in his project, 'Apukunaq Tianan' which means: 'abode of the gods'.


The site is located 40 minutes away from Cusco and now stands as a modern tourist attraction that hosts a variety of sculptures carved into the mountain's rocks.


Among the sculptures, there is a depiction of the Andean creator deity Viracocha (or Wiracocha), a puma that stands as part of the Incan trilogy of symbolic animals, as well as the face of Túpac Amaru, the last monarch of the Neo-Incan state. The only tools the sculptor used for his creations include a hammer and a chisel. The sculptures are between 15 and 17 meters (49.2 and 55.8 feet) tall.


The opening of the site in 2021 coincides with the bicentennial year of Peru's independence. To learn more about the admission prices and visiting hours, visit the attraction's Facebook page.
