Marco Herrera Museum: Lima,Peru

Posted In Art, Museum, Sightseeing

An old mansion which now houses a fine collection of historic Peruvian artifacts. Pottery, textiles, gold and silver ornaments. And a room of what is called Erotica. It did bring to mind the karma sutra, though my guess is that it is more likely celebrating fertility. Though there used to be adamant denial that human sacrifice was practiced in ancient Peru, there has been a discovery of vessels that prove that it did exist. Dinner was a buffet of local dishes served in a grassy courtyard with lovely plantings surrounding us. A pair of musicians- one on guitar and one on a wind instrument. Rather pooped and looking forward to our 8pm arrival at the Suissotel.
