Exploring the Mysteries of the Andes

Wall of the Six Monoliths

This close up shot shows an unusual feature; the finely carved stepped motif suggests the monolith’s surface has been finished, and yet the surface of all of the monoliths is still very rough in comparison to the Incas normal standards and that exhibited on the randomly placed monoliths in the vicinity of the wall.
