[image description] Pachamama's spirit appears to be carved into the mountain framed by waterfalls on either side of her and a halo-like sun with purple, orange and yellow hues. She appears as if she's embracing an abundance of Andean fruits, vegetables, flora and fauna. A llama and alpaca rests in the foreground, as a condor soars above her on the left in the background and two reddish-bluish butterflies (agrias) flutter above or near the pinkish-orange lillies (alstroemeria flowers) in the middle ground; a tropical fish and turtle swim about against the currents of the waterfalls as two snakes look on from either side of her.]
