The Shrine of Our Father Sun - Photograph ©Juan Negrin, July 1977 - 2010
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.
