Lambayeque - Museums

Yesterday and today paid a visit to the great local museums, the one of the Lord of Sipan and the Grüning Museum. Very interesting stuff:

This is a view of the Plaza de Armas from Chiclayo, the only rectangular one so far:

A park in Lambayeqe, with the pigeons:

Colonial house in Lambayeque, one of the few remaining:

The Plaza de Armas in Lambayeque. The kids in the background are doing an exam!:

The San Pedro Church:

The Museum of the Lord of Sipan. Unfortunately pictures inside were forbidden:

Reproduction of old Moche paintings:

The Decapitator God from the Moche:

These pics are from the Brüning museum, really cool stuff from mostly from the Moche culture:

Burial mask made of gold:

I had to be inventive to put myself in some pic!:

Gold everywhere:

The next figures are 5 cm .tall. Amazingly precised and detailed:
The Llampayeq figure:


Deer god:

Maybe a chaman with cat face?:

Some mummies at the museum:


Wow! That's a creepy one:

The cast they used for the cheramics:

Will spend a couple of days in quiet Lambayeque before heading up north to Ecuador...
