The Legend of: The Chancay Maiden of the Supe Valley of Peru [In Spanish and English]

Advance: to the lead the Inca, Chancay, Moche, and Chavin there was the Caral civilization, in the North-central coast of Peru, five thousand years ago (3000 BC)) all these civilizations lived in the Supe Valley at one period except the Moche, who lived in Chan Chan, neighboring the coast. Caral, a city-own happening you might notice, or perhaps a little sanctuary along the Supe Rio (of which were perhaps some 3000-inhabidents at one period)) of which I first crossed by foot, and came gain by horse)), in the Supe Valley, is most bravura, for I have been there and can bear this out.

This civilization coexisted subsequent to that of Mesopotamia of the Near East, or Crete of Europe; perhaps built their pyramids at the same era Egypt did. The city is not abandoned sacred, but it was political, taking into account all its six pyramids, tucked away in a mountain later corral (for that excuse it got its make known), in that it is together along in the midst of pretty mountains, known as the…. It is about 165-miles north of Lima; it is furthermore the city known as blazing place of the gods. You have three regions here: the Andean highlands, Andean jungle, and equatorial coastal place, of which now I have been to all three. It is close to the sea, the mountains see more than it, and the jungle is not that far away and wide and wide. [Caral: in Quechua, is cabuya, or sisal, a abstemious fiber often used in weaving.] Pottery was not discovered until detached to have been made at Caral, hence, no to the fore dates for its baking process. One would have to date it perhaps together amid the Inca and Chavin cultures, or a enlarged date might be the Chancay culture. It is known that the Chancay culture lived right going concerning for the site of the Caral Culture plus 900 and 1300 AD.

The Poem:

She sat crossed legged: the Sacred Supe Rio to her right:

Small, on a slope forehead: deep brown, secretive eyes;

Thin lips, slightly upward, triangular chin; skinny hair.
Sparse outer eyebrows (beautiful) considering a straight torso.

She was naked, arms stretched, crossed considering.

(She died according to her epoch.)

She sat crossed legged: the year 1102 AD, plus her

Lay, unbaked clay figurines; color cotton textiles;

Head adornments: were two round headdresses
Linked-and-twisted, made out of totora reed, hurry fiber

And cotton thread; a wooden comb by her knees.

Pieces of pottery lay by her side, in the hot valley sand

To the left of her were the Caral ruins, the outdated city.
(Four thousand years had now passed, her Ancestors long later;

Gone, now dead, perhaps her blood was currently, intermixed

With the many cultures that back walked this ablaze.)

She sat crossed legged and thought: how crafty she was

Compared to them, for she had made handles for her pottery,

And she was detached, consequently enormously unapproachable, of live thing: Peruvian
(following 11,000-years of proven chronicles). She brushed away the

Mosquitoes, watched her connections reforest corn, affectionate peppers
Along the banks of the Rio, in the Sacred Valley of Supe.

She sat crossed legged until sunset: watching the reds and

Yellows and tawny mist fade into the suns brightness:

Thus, she wept and wept, for someone or event had broken
Her pottery, as she laid yet from a blow to the gain of the head,

Her position (her cranial traumatized); it was every one one she could see,
As they bound her knees, the habit they did put up to in 3000 BC!

(She was share of the Caral legend. I for one, picked happening those
Pieces of clay, behind handles, in the sands of the Supe Valley).

La Doncella De Chancay del Valle De Supe de Per

Avance: antes de la Inca, Chancay, Moche, y Chavn hubo every one pension of la civilizacin de Caral, en la costa Centro al Norte de Per, hace cinco mil aos (3000 antes de Cristo) todas estas civilizaciones vivi en el Valle de Supe en cierta poca excepto La Moche, que vivi en Chan Chan, bordeando la costa.

Esta civilizacin coexisti discharge adherence la Mesopotmica del cercano Oriente, o Creta de Europa; quizs construy sus pirmides al mismo tiempo que lo hizo Egipto. La ciudad no slo es sagrada, sino tambin fue poltica, take motion todas sus seis pirmides, metidas en una montaa como corral (As esto consigui su nombre), la cual est rodeada por montaas hermosas, conocidos as. Esto est aproximadamente a 165 millas al norte de Lima; esta es tambin la ciudad conocida como el lugar de morada de los dioses. Usted tiene tres regiones aqu: las tierras altas Andinas, la selva Andina, y el rea ecuatorial costera, de cual ahora he estado de todas las tres. Est cerca del mar, las montaas se ven sobre esto, y la selva no est muy lejos de aqu. [Caral: en quechua, es cabuya, o el sisal, una fibra seca a menudo usada en el tejido.] La Cermica no fue descubierta hasta ms tarde, para ser hecho en Caral, ms, ningn dato reciente para su proceso de coccin. Uno podra tener un dato de esto talvez entre la Cultura Inca y Chavn, o una fecha mejor podra ser la cultura Chancay. Es sabido que la cultura Chancay vivi exactamente sobre el sitio de la Cultura Caral entre 900 y 1300 despus de Cristo.
