Peru: Ancient ruler's facial recreation hits international headlines

Lima, Sep. 22. International media has reacted to the recent 3D face reconstruction of the ancient Lord of Sipan, as it helped recreate the appearance of the ruler, who is believed to have died when he was 45 to 55 years old.

The Daily Mail Online posted a full story about the research conducted by Brazilian scientists in cooperation with Lima-based Inca Garcilaso de la Vega University and the Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum.

"Face of Lord of Sipan, the mysterious Moche warrior-priest, is brought back to life with a reconstruction of his 2,000-year-old skull" reads its headline.

The article outlines the way his face was digitally reconstructed from 96 fragments of skull found 29 years ago in Lambayeque region.

According to EFE, the forensic facial reconstruction recreated the appearance of the first great ruler of ancient Peru.

The Mochica warrior priest was even compared with the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun because of his lavish tomb, which housed a luxurious paraphernalia, 15 priests and royalty.

Latin American media outlets also reported the news item. Chilean daily El Mercurio, for instance, highlights the facial recreation of the legendary Lord of Sipan and that he was one of the leading figures from the third century AD, before the Incas came to power.

On the other hand, Ancient Origins, an archaeology website that highlights recent discoveries and history around the globe, explained the way this ruler' face has been revealed for the first time after an intensive initiative to reconstruct his face with the help of forensic anthropology experts.

With the use of cutting-edge technology, researchers found out that the ancient Peruvian priest was aged between 45 to 55 and was 1.67 meter tall.

    Peru General Information

    Peru, the largest area in the Andean countries, was the cradle of the most advanced indigenous civilizations and most powerful empire in  South America pre-Columbian cultures. Peru was also the focus of Spanish colonial domination for its first two hundred years of rule. What remained of pre-Columbian America with regard to people, culture, and settlements is perhaps better represented in Peru than in any other country.

    The country has a 2,400 kilometer (1,500 miles) long coast on the Pacific Ocean and bordes Colombia and Ecuador in the North, Brazil and Bolivia on the east, and Chile on the south. It is the only country that borders all the Andean state.

    Language: the official languages of Peru are: Spanish which is used on a 73% of the population; the Quechua or runasimi, spoken for a  24% of peruvians. Some specialists recognise to especific variations of quechua on the national territory : the huáihuash, which is quite popular on the central part of Peru and the huámpuy, spoken by the rest of the country.

    Most of the quechua-speakers are bilingual and have spanish as their second language.

Peru to welcome 50,000 Chinese tourists in two years

Shanghai (China), Sep. 16.Peru may soon welcome 50,000 Chinese visitors every year, figures substantially higher than the 19,243 received in 2015, Peru's Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Eduardo Ferreyros projected.
"Last year, close to 19,000 Chinese visitors entered Peru. However, our current objective is to promote the inflow of China tourists. We expect to welcome 50,000 Chinese nationals in two years," he pointed out. 
Said 19,000 visitors had to get a visa to visit the Inca nation, a requirement now removed by the government, Ferreyros stressed.
"One of the first measures taken by this administration was the visa waiver for Chinese citizens holding a Schengen, US or Canada visa. This will ease inflow of Chinese tourists," he noted.
Visitors from the Asian Giant are not only vacationing tourists, but also businessmen, the Minister added.
 
Foreign trade
The government official also referred to the different meetings held during President Kuczynski's visit. 
"While in Beijing, we have held several meetings with the Chinese Foreign Trade Ministry and sanitary authorities to gain access for Peruvian blueberries and shrimps. Likewise, we expect protocol signing to take place during Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit in November," he told Peruvian Canal N news station.
Topics addressed included the Peru-China FTA bilateral agenda. In this sense, the second meeting of the Peru-China Free Trade Agreement Commission has been scheduled for December (Beijing). 
Ferreyros also referred to talks on reinforcing the customs cooperation agreement binding both nations.
"We have discussed the need to strengthen the customs cooperation agreement in place for information exchange between Chinese and Peruvian customs agencies," he said.
On the other hand, he commented on the meeting held with China Eastern airline representatives in Shanghai to study passenger and cargo traffic.
"It seems like we are about to begin the first Lima-China cargo shipping of Peruvian products," he concluded.

Peru Travel Information

  • Machu Picchu Information

    Machu Picchu "old peak", is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level is an outstanding example of man's interaction with his natural environment, in the midst of a tropical mountain forest in an extraordinarily beautiful setting, Machu Picchu was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height. It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cusco and through which the Urubamba River flows. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacutec (1438–1472). Often referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas", it is perhaps the most familiar icon of Inca civilization.

    Machu Picchu travel


    Embedded within a dramatic landscape at the meeting point between the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon Basin, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is among the greatest artistic, architectural and land use achievements anywhere and the most significant tangible legacy of the Inca civilization. Recognized for outstanding cultural and natural values, the mixed World Heritage property covers 32,592 hectares of mountain slopes, peaks and valleys surrounding its heart, the spectacular archaeological monument of “La Ciudadela” (the Citadel) at more than 2,400 meters above sea level. Built in the fifteenth century Machu Picchu was abandoned when the Inca Empire was conquered by the Spaniards in the sixteenth century. It was not until 1911 that the archaeological complex was made known to the outside world.

    The approximately 200 structures making up this outstanding religious, ceremonial, astronomical and agricultural centre are set on a steep ridge, crisscrossed by stone terraces. Following a rigorous plan the city is divided into a lower and upper part, separating the farming from residential areas, with a large square between the two. To this day, many of Machu Picchu’s mysteries remain unresolved, including the exact role it may have played in the Incas’ sophisticated understanding of astronomy and domestication of wild plant species.
