Esta es la segunda de una serie de ilustraciones que he trabajado recientemente inspiradas en la cultura preinca Moche / Mochica que floreció en lo que hoy en día es la costa norte del Perú, entre los siglo II a.c y el VIII d.C, y cuyos descendientes incluyen la distinta cultura Chimú, contemporáneos de los Incas, y hoy los habitantes de la región noroeste de Perú.

Los Mochicas produjeron enormes estructuras de adobe más tarde conocidas por los Kichwa (un gran grupo de pueblos que incluyen a los Incas, originalmente de Qusqu / Cuzco, su idioma es el Runa Simi o "Quechua") como Wak'akuna (un concepto más amplio que incluye monumentos venerados y localizaciones naturales. Wak'a es la forma singular, y con el sufijo kuna es la forma plural), posteriormente hispanizado como Huacas.

También han elaborado artesanía en oro, cobre, cerámica, ropas, arte mural, agricultura, pesca y otras áreas, aunque no tenían un sistema de escritura, lo que dificulta la recopilación de ciertos detalles sobre su historia aparte de lo documentado por su arte, tumbas y sitios arqueologicos.

Aún así, uno de los individuos Moche / Mochicas más importantes que se conosen es el del siglo II d.c., que llegó a ser conocido por los arqueólogos modernos (desde 1987 después de un descubrimiento dirigido por Walter Alva y su equipo) como el "Señor de Sipán", un individuo de entre 35 y 45 años de edad, sepultado en una tumba ricamente adornada junto a un perro, guerreros y mujeres.

El señor de sipán fue encontrado en el sitio arqueológico Huaca Rajada, en el valle de Lambayeque. Posteriormente, también se descubrió que otros individuos mayores ricamente adornados habían sido sepultados en la misma estructura, posiblemente sacerdotes y un "señor de sipán" más antiguo. Eso también sugiere que este sitio y los pueblos que habitaban sus alrededores eran un gran centro urbano y tenían un sistema de gobierno habitado en su mayoría entre 50 - 700 d.c, antes de un período de inestabilidad meteorológica, ambiental y, por lo tanto, también politica y socioeconómica. Lo más probable es que los Moche no fueran un "imperio" unificado, sino organizaciones políticas distintas.

¡Espero que les guste tanto como a mí al producirlo! Y no olvide seguir y compartir mi trabajo en:

This is the second in a series of illustrations I've been recently working on inspired by the pre-Inca Moche / Mochica culture which flourished in what's nowadays the northern Peruvian Coast, by the 2nd Century b.c - 8th Century CE, and which descendants include the distinct Chimu, contemporary with the Inca.

While the Mochica produced huge adobe structures later known by the Kichwa (a large group of peoples which include the Qusqu / Cuzco based Inca, their language is Runa Simi / "Quechua") as Wak'akuna (a larger concept which include revered monuments and natural locations. Wak'akuna, with the kuna suffix is the plural form, whereas Wak'a is the singular), and hispanicized as Huacas; have displayed an elaborate craftsmanship on gold, copper, ceramics, clothing, mural art, agriculture, fishing and other areas, the Moche themselves didn't have a writing system, what makes it difficult to gather certain details about their history other from what's documented by their art, burial and archaeological sites. Still, one of the most important Moche / Mochica individuals known is that from the 3rd Century CE who came to be known by modern archaeologists (since 1987 after a discovery led by Walter Alva and his team) as the "Lord of Sipán", an individual in his 35 - 45 years of age, entombed in a richly adorned tomb alongside a dog, warriors and women.

The Lord of Sipán was found in the Huaca Rajada archaeological site in the Lambayeque Valley. Other richly adorned, older individuals were also later found to have been entombed in the same structure, possibly priests and an older Lord of Sipán who was related to the later and more famous. This also suggest that this site and the peoples who inhabited its surroundings were a urban center and polity, which was mostly inhabited between 50 - 700 CE, before a period of meteorological, environmental, and therefore also political and socioeconomical instability. The Moche most likely weren't an unified "empire", but distinct polities.

I hope you like it as much as I did producing it!
