In a beautiful and large area, the Parisian museum dedicated to Southern American, African and Asian civilizations reveals world story lines according to discoveries.
After the compelling exhibition about Maori, the Musée du Quai Branly takes us to the Andes Mountains thanks to an exhibition revealing the life in Peru before the Incas and the wealth of civilizations prior Incas. Cupisnique, Mochica, Chimú, Lambayeque, all these societies took part in the coming of a civilization, the Inca civilization.
Thanks to the latest archaeological advances conducted in the region – on Huaca sites near Trujillo or in Sipán royal graves – and through over 300 objects, the Musée du Quai Branly offers us a wonderful testimony of a political system now disappeared.
How did the society work? What was the people’s daily life, the kings’, elites’ and priests’? Through 5 sections and covering over 2000 years, the exhibition focuses on the Peru northern coast territory, the heavenly power, power and architecture, earth power and power practiced by women!
After this exhibition, we promise you’ll know more about Inca civilization story and finally the result of the social development of native people before Spanish conquered the territory.
