Photographer's Note

Huaca de La Luna is a very ancient temple-pyramid located very near of Trujillo city. The temple is being restored and explored and many new things are being discovered each day. Here we can see an ancient god of Moche people, that god was cruel and was known how the decapitator god. Many human sacrifices were made paying homage to him.After a ritual fight the losers were choose to be killed, their blood was mixed with special plants and was drunk by the priests and another part was given to that god.
