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

Advance: to the front 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, behind the coast. Caral, a city-insist you might post, or perhaps a little sanctuary along the Supe Rio (of which were perhaps some 3000-inhabidents at one time)) of which I first crossed by foot, and came support 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 times Egypt did. The city is not deserted sacred, but it was diplomatic, subsequent to all its six pyramids, tucked away in a mountain past corral (appropriately it got its publicize), in that it is together together moreover pretty mountains, known as the…. It is approximately 165-miles north of Lima; it is as well as the city known as address 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 on severity of it, and the jungle is not that far afield and wide. [Caral: in Quechua, is cabuya, or sisal, a sober fiber often used in weaving.] Pottery was not discovered until gone to have been made at Caral, therefore, no into the future dates for its baking process. One would have to date it perhaps together in the middle of the Inca and Chavin cultures, or a augmented date might be the Chancay culture. It is known that the Chancay culture lived right approximately the site of the Caral Culture in the middle of 900 and 1300 AD.Do you know about¬†politica hispana

The Poem:

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

Small, oblique forehead: deep brown, secretive eyes;

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

She was naked, arms stretched, crossed astern.

(She died according to her period.)

She sat crossed legged: the year 1102 AD, along surrounded by 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 earliest city.
(Four thousand years had now passed, her Ancestors long together surrounded by;

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

With the many cultures that furthermore walked this flaming.)

She sat crossed legged and thought: how crafty she was

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

And she was distant, suitably altogether detached, of monster: Peruvian
(plus 11,000-years of proven chronicles). She brushed away the

Mosquitoes, watched her connections reforest corn, hot 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 orangey mist fade into the suns brightness:

Thus, she wept and wept, for someone or situation had flashing
Her pottery, as she laid yet from a blow to the promote of the head,

Her approach (her cranial traumatized); it was all she could space,
As they bound her knees, the enlargement they did serve in 3000 BC!

(She was portion of the Caral legend. I for one, picked going on those
Pieces of clay, taking into account handles, in the sands of the Supe Valley).

La Leyenda De:
La Doncella De Chancay del Valle De Supe de Per

Avance: antes de la Inca, Chancay, Moche, y Chavn hubo every one one 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. Caral, una ciudad – estado usted podra decir, o quizs un pequeo santuario a lo largo de Ro Supe (del cual eran quizs unos 3000-habitantes inhabidents en cierta poca)) l cual yo primero cruc a pie, y volv a caballo)), en el Valle de Supe, esta la mayor virtuosidad, ya que he estado every y puedo confirmar esto. Esta civilizacin coexisti behave 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 effect 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.
