Puma Punku


Pumapunku´s  Unknow god






The Pumapunku is a platform built on an east-west axis in the same plain where is situated Tiwanaku but far from it some hundreds of meters. It's main difference from the other structures at the plain is its T-shaped construction. It measures 150 meters on each side and 5 meters tall. The heaviest stone block weighs 131 tons and was dragged from a quarry 10 km away. One of the sunken temples includes projecting heads of volcanic tuff which may imply remote Chavin influence.









Reconstruction of Puma Punku platform
after Javier E Escalante Moscoso, Arquitectura Prehispanica en los Andes Bolivianos, 2nd ed. (La Paz, 1994)


However the runis are far of seem something like to the reconstruction indicated above:





















Geometric forms, repetition and linearity.



Enjoy, really the place is really unique.

Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent
blog!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

Appreciate it!

I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the
layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one these days.
