Apukunaq Tianan a New Tourist Attraction in Cusco
The abode of the gods Apukunaq Tianan is a new and modern tourist attraction that in recent months is being very crowded by a large number of people.
It is located in Poroy district of the province and department of Cusco, in the community of Senk’a, approximately 40 minutes from the main square of Cusco. These are gigantic sculptures of gods and Andean figures carved in Rock on the same mountain by the Cusco Sculptor Michael de Titan.
He seeks through his sculptures to revalue the Andean culture and ideology, merging nature and art just as their ancestors the Incas did, in a way that transmits a powerful energy to us in their spectacular monuments.
Although this attraction is still under construction, it is expected that by 2021, the bicentennial year of Peru’s independence, it will be finished. Even so, Apukunaq Tianan has already opened its doors to the public as a space for outdoor recreation so that they can enjoy its imposing sculptures.
Each of the sculptures measures approximately between 15 and 17 meters in height, they are located in specific places and among them you can see more sculptures carved in wood and rock in smaller size.
Among the sculptures, from the entrance you can see a woman on top of a rock that refers to the Pachamama or mother earth, a very important deity in Inca times and that until today has maintained its importance.
You can also see the head of a Puma that represents one of the sacred animals of the Andean trilogy, the face of Tupac Amaru worked with a hammer and chisel, the God Wiracocha, the representation of the myth of the Ayar Brothers and finally the three-dimensional door .
Something that draws a lot of attention is that the whole place is meticulously worked, from the stands that connect the sculptures to the solid waste deposits carved out of rock. Every day we continue to work hard to finish this project.
In addition, the entire place is duly signposted and has the safety and health protocols for the COVID 19 pandemic. We are eager to return to The Abode of the Gods Apukunaq Tianan to see it finished.
