THE SECRET OF ACOMA
From The Nuevo Inca Collection
It’s always the anomaly that draws our attention. Like the Pueblo people of the Acoma Valley, which is also referred to as the ‘Sky City’ in ancient Inca mentions. These were peace-loving people who avoided conflict with the Apache and Navaho for centuries. And we think used their spare time and talent creating some of the most complicated curvilinear spirals and angular motifs to ever to be found by us. Also, they were first carved on gourds apparently. Weird, but wonderful.
