Qosqo

“Here sublimated: There is an almost funereal pureness in the circular accumulation of lithic whites that are also grays. But there is as well a mystic and messianic desire in the radiance of the aureate covering of a single cob (the mineral gold, the oneiric El Dorado),
so essentially placed in the central depression of this vortex.”
Gustavo Buntinx
