"…true marriage has nothing to do with the social or religious formulas of this barbaric humanity. The authentic marriage is performed when a couple unites in spirit, soul, and sex; the true marriage must be pure like a lotus flower."
- Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
Golden Inca Figure – Venus of Frías
Gold and platinum
15.3 x 8.7 cm
This unique sculpture was found near Piura in the Frías Valley. Like other objects found in the same area, the figure displays stylistic links to the Vicús and also the Moche, as well as Ecuadorian and Colombian cultures. She is completely hollow, constructed from sheet gold with soldered seams at the joints. Unusually, her eyes are inlaid platinum. Although naked, the figure may have been dressed in cloth garments before being placed in the tomb, a common practice in the Andes.
