“It is a wall with decorations found in Vichama, in the province of Huaura, north of Lima, the capital of Peru”, said CNN.
According to Ruth Shady, director of the Caral Archaeological Zone (ZAC), the reliefs symbolize the fertilization of the land. The snakes would be a deity linked to water, which filters into the earth and makes the seed germinate, according to Andina News Agency, cited by CNN.
This wall would be part of an area prior to the ceremonial hall of a public building in Vichama, informed CNN.
