Choquequiraw, a lama

Choquequiraw is an Inca city which is a recent archaeological study. On some of these walls are drawings of llamas through different color stone. Once again, an observation chart and architectural of the city allows to recognize a llama, even if this ruins of the city have not yet been completely cleared of vegetation. We can distinguish a leg, head and ears of the lama in Figure 8. Like Machu Picchu, the shape of the eyes appear to have been designed with two identical buildings and large size. The mane and muzzle also seem separated by architectural groups.
Choquequiraw The site is extensive and it is likely to be composed of several groups representing several drawings. One of them also resembles a mouse, designed solely using terrace farming.

Wiñay Wayna, a fish and an orchid

The small city of Winay Wayna near Machu Picchu, the shape of a fish (Fig. 2). The eye and the fins of fish seem to explain the form. Wayna meaning Young is what Winay could be related to a fish? In reality, this Quechua means' forever young "in Quechua and was the name of a rare orchid growing in the region. Probably explaining the fact that an area near the city in the form of a flower (Fig. 3).

Machu Picchu, a bird, a snake and caiman

All this research was initiated by the discovery of the shape of a bird to Machu Picchu (Fig. 4). However, the theory that it is the former Tampu tocco and the lower part of the city corresponds to the original citadel amautas mean, if given a form to the city was important that this part corresponds also to an animal. But theories and previous observations have identified the shape of this particular part of the city to an alligator. But the design shown is seen from the keeper's house, contradicting my hypothesis that the builders would have logically used the summit of Huayna Picchu to draw the shape. So I wanted to see what, according to my method, we could see from the Huana Picchu. In a less obvious that the shape of a bird, I still saw an alligator (Fig. 5), turned tail and along his body, his head is still the area with the highest form. An element seems to confirm, however, form a large rock located on the upper terrace seems indicated the position of the eye. This area deserves to be released because once again, the eye does not seem important now and there seems to be so amazing, the openings cut in the rock shaped eyes.

If Machu Picchu consisted of several areas or cite the source, like Pisac, then it is likely that another area that was located upstream including Intihuatana. Applying the rule of observation it identifies the head as the raised zone is located on the Intihuatana, and there is also a terrace with a unique shape and that seems like the eye, and a suite stones connected by mini-terraces down the hill can be identified with a snake hook. Thus this area is shaped like a snake (Fig. 5). Strangely, a rock in this area is called by Hiram Bingham the Rock for snakes because of a snake carved on the rock. This may be a reminder of the shape of the sector. In addition, the end of the snake appears to be in the deck, explaining the lines of separation between the graphical agricultural terraces in this area.

Montesinos says that after the Amautas death of Pachacuti VI, they returned to Tocco Tampu to bury their emperor but also to build a new city. It is possible that the sector-shaped Cayman is the first finished the previous death of Pachacuti VI, in the form of the second snake, built by survivors Amautas who built the city around the tomb of Pachacuti VI, located in the temple of the sun and then, under the leadership of Manco Capac and shortly before his reign, the general shape of a bird has been defined, adding terraces to the main existing forms to reach the bird.

The form on the ruins of Huayna Picchu also deserves to be analyzed, but unfortunately I do not have enough visual material.
