Michael de Titan, a sculptor from Cusco, has surprised the internet with his latest creation, Apukunaq Tianan (literally “abode of the gods”). This sculpture was created in Peru, a South American country well-known for its Incan ruins. Cusco is around 40 minutes away from the sculpture. The artist’s goal was to combine art with nature. Despite this sculpture, there are a few more in the vicinity.
There is a representation of the Andean creator deity Viracocha (or Wiracocha), the Incan Mother Earth goddess Pachamama, the head of a puma (which is part of the Incan triad of symbolic animals), and the visage of the Neo-Incan state’s last monarch, Tpac Amaru, there. De Titan carved these magnificent works of art into the granite face using just a chisel and hammer. The sculptures are all between 15 and 17 meters tall (49.2 and 55.8 ft).
