Mamaconas for Purity of Spirit
From the Inca Achala Collection
Mamaconas were similar to nuns and lived in temple sanctuaries and served the Inca and priests. Young girls of the nobility spent 4 years as Acllas then either married into nobility or chosen as spouses of the Sun God.
Cloaked by the mists of the Andean peaks there remains a multitude of alluring secrets and myths of the ancient Inca people. The spoken word has handed down their legends and magical knowledge, much of which is still waiting to be revealed. Their archaic designs are carefully reproduced and enriched to create a mystical selection of pendants that give an insight into the Inca's hidden wonders.
Each talisman is produced in zinc and includes:
- Link Chain
- Satin Pouch
- Comprehensive Leaflet with all meanings
Approximate size: 1 inch x 1 inch (27 mm x 27 mm).
