Details

The Inkarri (or Inkari) myth is one of the most famous legends of the Inca. When the Spanish conquistadores executed the last ruler of the Inca, Atahualpa, he vowed he would come return to avenge his death. According to the legend, the Spaniards buried his body parts in several places around the kingdom: His head is said to rest under the Presidential Palace in Lima, while his arms are said to be under the Waqaypata (Square of tears) in Cuzco and his legs in Ayacucho. Buried under the earth he will grow until one day, when he will rise, take back his kingdom and restore harmony in the relationship between Pachamama (the earth) and her sons.  The Qero weave many versions of the regenerating Inkarri into their mestanas.
