Llullo Machaco Serpiente Verde
Llullo means green, tender and young in Quechua. In the Peruvian selva people call babies llullos. The idea expressed in this picture is that however our life unfolds and whatever our destiny might be, we are all born in absolute perfection. We are innocent when we come into the world and have no guile or deceits.
The Llullo Machaco symbolises this purity and its verdant colour is like the virgin forest; uncultivated and uncontaminated. The serpent has long been regarded as the evil that tempted Adam and Eve into eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge and religions have used these guilty feelings to manipulate and control us, and no good has come of it. The birds are messengers from the celestial temples and palaces seen above.
