Indigenous Farmer with Oxen Statue in Lima, Peru

Prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century and the Inca Empire before them (1438 – 1533), the indigenous people of the Ichma culture lived in the valleys surrounding present day Lima. This bronze of a farmer with two oxen in a yoke is a tribute to those pre-Columbian ancestors. “La Yunta” which means “Work” was sculpted in 1937 by Peruvian artist Ismael Pozo Velit. The statue stands in front of the Palace of Justice on Paseo de Republica.
