The Condor, the puma and the serpent Peruvian Organic Hand Carved Andean Trilogy for Spiritual Meditation or Totem.
100% High Grade Palo Santo (color variations can differ)
These three sacred animals make up the Trilogy in the Inca religion. They represent the heavens (Hanan Pacha) where the gods reside, the earth or world of the living (Kay Pacha) where we humans inhabit, and the underworld (Uku Pacha) or the world of the dead.
The condor was considered by the Incas to be the messenger of the gods between the heavens (Hanan Pacha) and the earth (Kay Pacha). It is thought the sacred city of Machu Picchu may have been designed with the shape of the condor in mind, its wings stretching up the mountains into the heavens.
The puma was a divine animal that represented the power of the earth and land of the living (Kay Pacha), which humans inhabit. This graceful cat also symbolizes strength, intelligence, wisdom, and patience – qualities that we all strive for during our time on this earth.
The serpent represents the underworld, or land of the dead (Uku Pacha). Once people left the earthly realm (Kay Pacha), they moved on to the land of the dead, whose emissary was the serpent. They believed that those who lived by the three Inca golden rules “ama sua, ama lulla, ama qella’, or “do not steal, do not lie, do not be lazy,” would spend their afterlife in the warmth of Inti (the sun).
