A small dish with the Sun and Moon inside. Made by a woman from Raqch’i who lives in Pisaq. It also has the figure of a monkey and a cantu flower.
Raqch’i is a very special Inca site in Peru dedicated to the Creator Viracocha. The temple complex is huge. The main temple is two stories tall and divided by a wall in the center. On either side of the temple are eleven large pillars ~ 11:11. The women of Raqch’i made beautiful pottery in earth tones. Many of them have motifs of the Sun and Moon. Others feature either Pachamama (Mother Earth) or Sara Mama (The Corn Mother). Their ceramics feel sacred and real.
