Video Text: The Wari people inhabited the Andes Mountains in Perú from 500-1000 A.D. Wari art and architecture influenced later Andean cultures such as the Incan and the Lambayeque civilizations. The ruins of this forgotten society can be seen today in Ayacucho, Perú.
The Wari lived along the highlands and coastal areas of Perú on the Western side of South America. The capital city, Wari, was located 11 kilometers Northeast of modern-day Ayacucho, Perú.
Wari Art was composed with many different colors, plants and animals. Although buried with passed loved ones, the art has been exceptionally preserved. At first glance, the weaves follow a predictable geometric pattern. However, to the trained eye, one discovers glaring color changes designed to keep the viewer intrigued.
