Cusco: Puma Wall

Calle Hatunrumiyoc in Cusco is an excellent example of Incan master-craftsmanship. Not only were they able to fit together huge blocks of stone by carving them into multi-sided shapes with perfectly smooth faces that leave no room for even a piece of paper to fit into, but they also fashioned a puma as they went along.
