Exhibit Of The Month 23

the pre-Inca god of the portal


Everyone needs someone to keep a lookout at the door, and Mythstories is no exception.

Our chosen guardian is the pre-Inca god of the portal. Worshiped by the Tiwanaku civilisation from around 200BC until about 600AD. His image was later taken by the head of the Inca pantheon Viracocha, the God of Creation.

The embroidered image that keeps watch next to Mythstories door was acquired for the museum by storyteller Helen East in Peru while on a tour of South America.
