HUACA DE LA LUNA

Rhombs and Triangles

The composition of the reliefs was based on rhombs and triangles To Related image to the Multimedia Galleryof great size, starting from equidistant oblique lines.

The rhombs were bounded by bands in high relief painted in yellow on a black ground. Inside these were smaller rhomboid drawings, framing the face of an anthropomorphized personase in various colors. Between the outside and inside rhomboids there was a band with some geometrical designs representing the head of a fish in relief, also painted in yellow on a ground, or low relief, in black.

The minor triangles between the rhombs formed a red band. On the inside a personage was modeled similar to the one in the rhombs, but with the heads of a sea bird.

A comparative study of diverse iconographic representations showed that the motif of the anthropomorphized face is very similar in nearly all details and characteristics to the face of the "winged decapitator" of Piura and Lambayeque, and also to the "demon with prominent eye-brows" of the Piura area.

The remaining mysteries of the Huaca de la LunaTo Related image to the Multimedia Gallery are still to be revealed but work is hampered by a great cavity dug during colonial times and that has destroyed nearly a third of the platform.
