Inca Version of Milky Way Constellations, Qorikancha

The stars in the sky were very important to the religion of the Inca. Like many other cultures, the Inca grouped the stars into constellations. They saw many animals and other things from their daily lives when they looked to the stars. Qorikancha has this large mural that depicted the various constellations as the Incans saw and named them.
