Artist's Description

About fifty miles from Cusco, Peru, is Ausengate Mountain. It is the home of the Apu, the spirit of the sacred mountain, the most powerful of all nature spirits in the Incan culture. Ausangate is also know as the sacred mountain that is the home of their ancestors. An Apu is also known as a light being that exists between special mountains. Incans believe that Apu spirits live in both the middle and upper worlds, and can intercede with the Gods on behalf of humanity.
