From Machu Picchu back to the city of Lima, we decided to go to the Amano museum.
The Amano Museum is located on the street of Retiro in the Miraflores district.
Yoshitaro Amano (1898 – 1982) is a Japanese businessman, Andean civilization researcher, who was active in Lima, established the museum. He is not known in the world, but I think he is like Heinrich Schliemann.
The museum mainly displays textile, earthenware and pottery.
Net like this was used by the earliest Peruvians. Made of Cabuya. (Cabuya is species of shrub (Agavaceae) native to the Yungas Area and western slopes of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. It is still a material such as rope.)
I took this picture in the museum looking at the video. I wonder if it is a creature in the legendary or mythological world. If you know about it, please let me know.
Chancay was a pre-Columbian archeological civilization which located on the central coast of Peru, from about CE 1000 to 1470.
The guide explained each items, unfortunately I have forgotten most of it. Sorry.
It is time to leave the museum. Lotus are blooming outside the museum.I had a very fun time.
