Andean gods’ wonderful sculptures
Peru, located in Southern America, is well-known around the world for its Incan monuments, particularly the Macchu Picchu ancient city. Michael de Titan, a painter from Cusco, is continuing the Incan tradition of fusing art and environment with the construction of his most recent piece, Apukunaq Tianan, which translates to “abode of the gods.” This contemporary tourist destination, which is around 40 minutes from Cusco, has a variety of artworks cut right into the mountain’s stone.
A representation of the Andean founder deity Viracocha (or Wiracocha), the Incan Mother Earth goddess Pachamama, the head of a puma (one of the three symbolic creatures used by the Incas), and the visage of the final ruler of the Neo-Incan kingdom, Tpac Amaru, are among the characters. De Titan added these astounding pieces of art into the granite face using only a chisel and hammer. The artworks are all between 49.2 and 55.8 ft, or 15 and 17 meters.
The opening of Apukunaq Tianan in 2021 is in the middle of Peru’s bicentennial year of freedom. Join the site on Fb to find out more about the statues, including its present opening times and entrance costs.
In the same stone, Peruvian artist Michael de Titan carved images of Andean deities.
These statues are a part of the new Apukunaq Tianan tourism destination in Cusco, Peru, which translates to “the dwelling of the gods.”
In honor of Peru’s independence’s 200th anniversary, it debuted in 2021.
