Chancay, one of the ancient pre-Inca cultures of Peru, notable for its weavings, which reach us in insufficient fragments to fully reconstruct its history. Hence the need to resort to the imagination, to a perception that supplies us with the rigid line that history offers us to recreate the shattered through a fantasy; so that we live a moment of their lives by bringing them to the present.

Sometimes the real is more real when it is a construction of our imagination.
