Facebook | My Photos - Museo Rafael Larco Herrera, Lima

Please press on the link to view my pictures of the recently renovated museum Rafael Larco Herrera, in Pueblo Libre, Lima, Perú.  This marvelous jewel was created by Rafael Larco Hoyle, in honor of his father, who gave him his first pieces and inspired him to investigate about the ancient Peruvian cultures of northern Perú and to create one of the best museums which Lima has.  Enjoy and please note that the erotic art, a major collection at the museum, is a wonderful work of art and brings an important message from the Mochica culture to its inhabitants, about the cycle of life of a common individual and the consequences of excesses in their sexual behavior.  The explanations are in Spanish but they are self explanatory and I will publish a short story of the founder of this museum and the origin of the ceramic and funerary remains of this exhibit of the Mochicas of Perú, and other cultures here shown.
