Photo of the Week

This week’s photo reveals the exquisite carved detail at Chotuna-Chornancap, Peru. This site, along with Bandurria, Peru pictured in last week’s Photo, is one of SPI’s newest projects beginning in 2013. The site of Chotuna-Chornancap is a stunning 235-acre monumental temple complex where several royal tombs have been discovered. However, the local community currently survives in impoverished conditions where electricity, a sewer system and even clean water is absent. The Sustainable Preservation Initiative will generate a sustainable income for the local community here by facilitating artisan training and production of center. This economic development will empower the local community and incentivise the preservation of this astounding cultural heritage.
