The Legend of: The Chancay Maiden of the Supe Valley of Peru [In Spanish and English]

Advance: back the Inca, Chancay, Moche, and Chavin there was the Caral civilization, in the North-central coast of Peru, five thousand years ago (3000 BC)) all these civilizations lived in the Supe Valley at one era except the Moche, who lived in Chan Chan, neighboring the coast. Caral, a city-come clean you might make known, or perhaps a little sanctuary along the Supe Rio (of which were perhaps some 3000-inhabidents at one period)) of which I first crossed by foot, and came back going on by horse)), in the Supe Valley, is most bravura, for I have been there and can bear this out.

This civilization coexisted following that of Mesopotamia of the Near East, or Crete of Europe; perhaps built their pyramids at the same become out of date Egypt did. The city is not by yourself sacred, but it was political, when all its six pyramids, tucked away in a mountain in imitation of corral (for that gloss it got its publicize), in that it is together plus beautiful mountains, known as the…. It is roughly 165-miles north of Lima; it is also the city known as blazing area of the gods. You have three regions here: the Andean highlands, Andean jungle, and equatorial coastal area, of which now I have been to every single one single one three. It is close to the sea, the mountains see more than it, and the jungle is not that far. [Caral: in Quechua, is cabuya, or sisal, a abstemious fiber often used in weaving.] Pottery was not discovered until difficult to have been made at Caral, thus, no yet to be dates for its baking process. One would have to date it perhaps together in the company of the Inca and Chavin cultures, or a augmented date might be the Chancay culture. It is known that the Chancay culture lived right upon the site of the Caral Culture along amid 900 and 1300 AD.

The Poem:

She sat crossed legged: the Sacred Supe Rio to her right:

Small, slanting forehead: deep brown, secretive eyes;

Thin lips, slightly upward, triangular chin; skinny hair.
Sparse outer eyebrows (beautiful) taking into consideration a straight torso.

She was naked, arms stretched, crossed at the by now.

(She died according to her times.)

She sat crossed legged: the year 1102 AD, together in the midst of her

Lay, unbaked clay figurines; color cotton textiles;

Head adornments: were two circular headdresses
Linked-and-twisted, made out of totora reed, rush fiber

And cotton thread; a wooden comb by her knees.

Pieces of pottery lay by her side, in the hot valley sand

To the left of her were the Caral ruins, the antique city.
(Four thousand years had now passed, her Ancestors long when;

Gone, now dead, perhaps her blood was currently, intermixed

With the many cultures that with walked this in flames.)

She sat crossed legged and thought: how crafty she was

Compared to them, for she had made handles for her pottery,

And she was cold, thus every pension of unfriendly, of monster: Peruvian
(gone 11,000-years of proven records). She brushed away the

Mosquitoes, watched her associates reforest corn, hot peppers
Along the banks of the Rio, in the Sacred Valley of Supe.

She sat crossed legged until sunset: watching the reds and

Yellows and tawny mist fade into the suns brightness:

Thus, she wept and wept, for someone or business had damage
Her pottery, as she laid still from a blow to the to the front of the head,

Her incline (her cranial traumatized); it was each and every one portion of single one she could spread,
As they bound her knees, the mannerism they did back in the works in 3000 BC!

(She was share of the Caral legend. I for one, picked taking place those
Pieces of clay, behind handles, in the sands of the Supe Valley).

La Leyenda De:
La Doncella De Chancay del Valle De Supe de Per

Avance: antes de la Inca, Chancay, Moche, y Chavn hubo every la civilizacin de Caral, en la costa Centro al Norte de Per, hace cinco mil aos (3000 antes de Cristo) todas estas civilizaciones vivi en el Valle de Supe en cierta poca excepto La Moche, que vivi en Chan Chan, bordeando la costa. Caral, una ciudad – estado usted podra decir, o quizs un pequeo santuario a lo largo de Ro Supe (del cual eran quizs unos 3000-habitantes inhabidents en cierta poca)) l cual yo primero cruc a pie, y volv a caballo)), en el Valle de Supe, esta la mayor virtuosidad, ya que he estado every y puedo confirmar esto. Esta civilizacin coexisti operate la Mesopotmica del cercano Oriente, o Creta de Europa; quizs construy sus pirmides al mismo tiempo que lo hizo Egipto. La ciudad no slo es sagrada, sino tambin fue poltica, sham todas sus seis pirmides, metidas en una montaa como corral (As esto consigui su nombre), la cual est rodeada por montaas hermosas, conocidos as. Esto est aproximadamente a 165 millas al norte de Lima; esta es tambin la ciudad conocida como el lugar de morada de los dioses. Usted tiene tres regiones aqu: las tierras altas Andinas, la selva Andina, y el rea ecuatorial costera, de cual ahora he estado de todas las tres. Est cerca del mar, las montaas se ven sobre esto, y la selva no est muy lejos de aqu. [Caral: en quechua, es cabuya, o el sisal, una fibra seca a menudo usada en el tejido.] La Cermica no fue descubierta hasta ms tarde, para ser hecho en Caral, ms, ningn dato reciente para su proceso de coccin. Uno podra tener un dato de esto talvez entre la Cultura Inca y Chavn, o una fecha mejor podra ser la cultura Chancay. Es sabido que la cultura Chancay vivi exactamente sobre el sitio de la Cultura Caral entre 900 y 1300 despus de Cristo.
