    PROJECT:
    Carlos Jiménez Cahua’s Hatun Rumiyoc, etc. is a series of cast concrete copies of the famous Incan-carved 12-angled wall stone of Cuzco Peru. The artist’s replicas mimic the façade dimensions of the ancient Andean object, but vary in depth and sit in a variety of orientations throughout the landscape, linking the geographically removed site to the Park.
