Details

These pagos de plomo, literally payments of lead, are small amulets used in the Peruvian Andes in offerings to the earth mother, Pachamama. By burning the lead and tin figures and reading the pattern produced in the ashes, a practiced shaman may predict the future. These figures are also commonly included in traditional despacho kits. We have several different types to choose from:

  • Cross = Peace (shown in picture)
  • Horseshoe = Luck
  • Virgin de la Candelar = Miracles
  • Heart = Marriage/Happiness
  • Sun = Light, Confidence, Accomplishment

 

 

This list defines the symbolic meanings for some of the tiny figures:

  • Woman = Love
  • Cow = Wealth
  • Rooster = Caution
  • Fox = Cunning
  • Key = Ability
  • Spoon = Prosperity
  • Matrimony = Fertility
  • Dog = Fidelity
