Photo by Hiram Bingham THIE HIGH PRIEST'S HOUSE: MACHU PICCHU This picture of the interior of the priest's house gives a better idea of the stone of the 32 angles. Not only were portions of two niches cut out of this stone, but in a spirit of freakish ingenuity the builders carried a small portion of the stone around the corner, so that a part of the corner itself is in this extraordinary block.

Notice the care with which the stones were selected, cut, and symmetrically arranged.
