Selo's experience in Chachapoyas
Sarcofagos de Karajia
The six (originally eight) sarcophagi are up to 2.5 meters tall and constructed of clay, sticks and grasses. Their inaccessible location high above a river at a cliff has preserved them from destruction by looters. The sarcophagi are of a type particular to the Chachapoya called purunmachus. The purunmachus of Carajía are unique because of the human skulls that sit atop their heads. #statue #hiking #mountains #history #archeologicalsite
