The right-hand figure is seated near the boulder (see text, page 544). Photo by Hiram Bingham A NEARER VIEW OF THE PETROGI,YPIIS NEAR LIMATAMBO A partial view of the Maranyocc boulder covered with petroglyphs. Their significance is not known, and there is no tradition in the vicinity to account for their presence here. The picture was taken by arranging the tripod so that the camera pointed almost directly down. It is barely possible that this rock, which is carved in a manner unlike any other hitherto found in the Department of Cuzco, represents the story of an Indian raid from the jungles of the Amazon into the heart of the land of the Incas.
