Carving of Condor Beak
The carving of the condor beak shown in the image is part of the Condor Temple located on the Machu Picchu archaeological site in Peru. Behind this carving is a natural rock, which is believed to represent a wing of the condor. According to the Inca legend, the carving of the condor beak and the natural rock behind it constitute the Condor Temple.
The Andean condor is revered by the indigenous cultures of South America. It played an important role in the Inca culture and religion as it symbolizes the upper-world realm, Hanan Pacha.
