Tampu tocco, Machu Picchu and mysteries of inca cities

Francais | English

Part I : Sacred valley

Pisaq (or Pisac): A bird and an old lady

Relevance of the design: high

The town of Pisac, near Cusco, was the victim of a mistake similar to one made at Machu Picchu. Today the shape of the city is regarded as a bird with wings spread, seen in Figure 1. The comparison is made between the name of the city Pisac pisak of deriving meaning partridge queshua and the shape of a bird. However the error is regarded as Pisak is the name of all currently known Pisac. Indeed, Pisac actually consists of four distinct areas called Pisak, Intihuatana, Q'Allaqasa and Kinchiracay. If we consider only the Pisak part, we notice that the buildings of the city are in the upper region of Pisak. Applying the same logic as that found at Machu Picchu, we get a bird in profile, with head, beak and crest (Fig. 2). The form is less perfect than that of Machu Picchu, but this can be explained by the time construction of Pisac. This is quite a city of the late Inca period and it is likely that the target architecture has not been reached. Besides can be distinguished tail of the bird which first construction lines are defined today by the vegetation line.

By separating the different areas of the city, and applying an approach similar observation, we discover that Q'Allaqasa the form of an old lady. Again, the head contains the important buildings. The eye and ear seem well defined. An old lady, this is not a sacred animal. But perhaps, like the Nazca Lines, the Inca attempted to draw shapes to the sky, without selecting only animals sacred, they may be reserved for major cities? It should also explore whether the word can refer Q'Allaqasa in queshua, an elderly woman or a person.

Ollaytantambo a snake

Relevance of the design: high

Similarly Choquequiraw the site where we find references to the llama on the walls, found in Ollaytantambo a registration form on the coil remains the most colossal temple. However, as shown in Figure 3, Ollaytantambo is shaped like a snake with the head, the important buildings of the Ciil is possible that there really 2 forms for the tip of the tail has two buildings that could represent both eyes. A snake that ate a animal?

Moray, a strange face.

Relevance of the drawing medium

It seems that the rule could be applied to architectural Inca major cities. In applying it to the website of Moray, one can distinguish a nose, eyes and mouth and a deflection at eye level and suggesting to a person making a face (Fig. 4). But this form is fairly likely. There is likely to be different. For cons the parties must represent circular eye. An alternative vision would consider the eye as a deformed mouth.
