Cusco, a city in southeastern Peru, has been long held by the Andean indigenous people as the "navel of the world." The meeting point of The Four Quarters of the Inca empire, this city is now revered as an archeological hotspot as much as a living ancient place.

The splendor of Pachamama, or Mother Earth, is on full display, with the rich hues provided by natural pieces of serpentine, sodalite, spondilus, mother of pearl, & turquoise laid and welded by hand in sterling.
