Cerro Sechin is an Initial Period (1,800-900 B.C.) site in the Casma Valley of Peru. The carved stone facade depicts gruesome images of figures brandishing clubs, severed heads, and dismembered body parts. Some scholars suggest that this monument may have served as a testimony of a particular group's victory in warfare.

    Unfortunately the camera shut off halfway through the panorama. Therefore only a portion of the facade is visible. Stay tuned for the complete shot this October.
