Coya

A little bit of Inca history

Couldn’t help but think that the shape of the necklace bib reminds me of something worn in Ancient Inca jewelry. So this piece is called Coya, the name given to the Queen of the Inca.

  • Quick study

The Inca civilisation flourished in ancient Peru between c. 1400 and 1533 CE, and their Empire eventually extended across western South America from Quito in the north to Santiago in the south, making it the largest empire ever seen in the Americas and the largest in the world at that time.

In the Inca system, the Coya held a place of importance when it came to rituals, worship and religion. She operated alongside her male counterpart, in other words it was a system of parallelism. This duality was preeminent in their belief system. The Coya was also an important political figure in Inca culture.  A potential queen had to show that she was capable of leadership and responsibility.

The image below is what I found after the Coya necklace was related. I was in awe really. Since then, I have found readings and sources of other peoples and ethnic cultures with similar styled neck wear.

What is it that they say? The more things change, the more they stay the same.
