Beautiful hand painted ceramic vase from Raqch’i. Painted in natural, browns and green on natural terra cotta. Has stylized designs of the Sun and Moon and clouds, plus Pachamama’s sacred cantu flower and llamas.
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.
