In the above photograph we see a detail of the shrine of Our Father Sun, Tayau Xirikieya, which is built on a pyramidal platform. The central disk or tepari is a nierika which symbolizes the penetrating vision of Our Father Sun. This is one example of what will be covered under the heading of sacred art.
