    NAVIGATION TIP:

    Use the Firefox browser with the CoolPreview add on. CoolPreview will give a magnifying glass icon at every link when you put your cursor on the link. Click on the icon and it will open a separate, smaller window with the definition of the term in it. You can either lock the window by clicking the padlock icon in the top bar of the little window, or move your cursor off the window and it will automatically close. This is almost as good as mouseovers.

    Thunapa Wiracocha, Thonapa Wiracocha, Tunapa, Thunapa Wiracochan: (n) One of the many names of Wiracocha, but may be more ancient. Thunapa was a pre-Incan storm god, upon whom the Incas modelled their own storm god, Illapa.  MAN A figure of Callao legend, he became identified with Wiracocha. Like Wiracocha, he arrived mysteriously from the south on the banks of Lake Titicaca at a time when the sun had just returned after a long absence. He had magical powers to make water flow from stone and the imprint of his feet could be seen even in hard rock. As he made his way north through the Andean foothills, he inspired universal veneration and acquired the name of Ticci Wiracocha. IAWS The name of a Light Being from Lake Titicaca. His face is carved in the side of the mountain at Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. IGMP Legendary god who walked among men and founded the vast majority of the existing temples of Peru; the legends leave unclear whether this figure is Wiraqocha, but it appears more likely that he is the son or spawn of Wiraqocha, or is an entirely independent figure, yet Thunupa is said to have created the Ruta de Wiraqocha, the legendary pilgrimage path that cuts through Peru. Thunupa is typically described as a white-skinned man with a long beard and features similar to those of Quetzalcoatl of the Maya and Jesus Christ; he was, in the Andes, the Pacha Yachachiq — the world teacher. ANON1

    The face of Thunapa appears on the side of
    Apu Wiraqochan across from Ollantaytambo.


    thuqay, tuqay, toqay, thoqay: (v) To spit. RS
