PACHAMAMA, the earth mother of the Peruvian cultures, also survived the conquest. On the left is a Nazca ceramic version of this popular fertility goddess, her source of life and fertility richly decorated. On the right Pachamama has been carved on the facade of the 17th century Colonial church of San Francisco in La Paz Bolivia with a flower covering her sex and plants sprouting from her shoulders. What seems strange to us seemed perfectly natural to the ancient Peruvians: one worshipped the source of life and placing a representation of it on the facade of a house of worship seemed perfectly logical.
