Wiracocha, Lord Creator, shines on a decorative plate by Ana Maria Enciso. He is guarded by a circle of feline glyphs, regarded as mystical in the Inca Parthenon. The original divinity of the people of Tiahuanaco, Wiracocha emerged from the waters of Lake Titicaca. He created the heavens, the earth, and the first generation of giants who inhabited the land in total darkness. Enciso casts the deities and feline of brass, and sets them on a copper decorative plate. Includes a hook for hanging.
