Chocked full of iconographic representations of Andean cosmology, this beautifully hand carved stone crescent shaped tile was created by shamanic artists Abelardo & Luz Marina. Hand made, so your piece may vary slightly from photo in type and placement of designs.
Our intricately hand carved, alabaster-like stone tile features the revered Incan animal totem Otorongo, the Jaguar. Orotongo is protected by 12 encircling symbols for the sacred mountains, or apus, and leaps in bas relief over other Andean symbols. Expertly carved by shamanic artists, Abelaro and Luz Marina in Peru.
Our finely hand carved, alabaster-like round stone tile features the revered Incan animal totem Amaru, the serpent. Amaru rests coiled in bas relief on a background of other Andean symbols representing god of lightning, wind, coca leaf kintu, protection for the home, sacred hummingbird, and agricultural field crop furrows and others. The outer carved ring around the piece represents the twelve Sacred apus, or spirits, of the Andean mountains. Expertly carved by shamanic artists, Abelaro and Luz Marina in Peru.
This carved stone couple commemorate fertility. They wear headdresses shaped as the Pre-Incan or Incan ceremonial cutting instrument called a tumi. Reminescent of the Moche carvings found in the northern Peruvian Sipán site, this male and female duo are carved from what is known locally as Machu Pichu stone found in Peru.
