“The name “Pacha Mama” comes from the Quechua language of the ancient Incan Empire of northeast Argentina. Pacha Mama means Mother Earth. This sculpture represents the relationship of love and respect we should have with our earth. The metal base connects with the earth while simultaneously embracing the granite spiral which symbolizes life evolving and yet in harmony with its origin.”
