Artist's Description

Before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors, Cuzco, Peru, was the grand imperial city of the Inca Empire. Mighty Emperors ruled a realm that stretched from Colombia to Chile.
The Inca were great builders, and the future hotel Monasterio was originally built as a palace near the center of town.
The palace was taken over around 1598 by the Spanish, who converted it into a seminary dedicated to San Antonio Abad. A 1650 earthquake damaged the seminary, but it was rebuilt and the chapel was added.
Today, in addition to being Cuzco’s best-known luxury hotel, the building is protected by the Peruvian government as a national historic landmark.
Here we see a cascade of arches in the entrance hallway filled with art.
