Q'ero - Peru

XL-23 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Q’ero | Ausangate Mountain, Range, Andes | Peru, 2018


It is said that apu fertility goddess Pachamama, or World Mother, gave the alpaca to the Incas to keep them warm in the mountain cold, and the Quechua have been herding alpacas in the high Andes for many centuries. Q’eros perform ceremonies to pray for the fertility and good health of their animals, using coca leaves and necklaces of fruit in their worship of the mountain spirits. The wool of the alpaca is used to make yarn from which almost every Quechua group weaves their traditional fabric. Alpaca dung is used as fuel for cooking fires and as an agricultural fertilizer.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
