The Paracas Candelabra (or Candelabra of the Andes), overlooking the Pisco bay on the Paracas peninsula of central eastern Chile.
Believed to be made by the pre-Incan Paracas people, C. 200BC. Some scholars think it is a kind of narcotic plant called Jimson Weed, others, that it
represents the tree of life. I personally go with the latter, as to me, it looks nothing like Jimson Weed.
I'll add a trivia question too there is some evidence that shows the same pyramid was painted, what colour was it?
Red, red ochre to be precise, though still a lot of debate on this. The polished limestone was white. Solar temples were often red, and evidence
supports some other pyramids being this color. Other scholars believe the paint traces to be from the first archeological teams.
