Procesión general de los indios antiguos

This painting from the Codex Murúa shows the “General procession of the ancient Indians.” The author's description of the procession, on the facing page, remarks that the men went along “with much silence, without talking, . . . and then they said: ‘Let the Sun be a youth, let the Moon be a maiden, let the earth not be troubled, let there be much peace. Let the Inca live for many years . . . let him live well, and guard and govern us.’”
