The sarcophagus Chachapoyas basically conforms a clay cap to 2.50 meters and human aspect. Only the bust and head, crowned by a mummified skull ritual, are compact. Wearing a feather cloak appear highlighted with red paint. Inside it was located the mummy of an illustrious figure in fetal position and wrapped in woolen and cotton.
Unlike sarcophagi of the Old World, they were deployed
in inaccessible caves carved into the top of rocky cliffs.
