Inca Stone

Funnily enough I think that this is going to be the photo that makes it into a frame on my wall. The large stone is named "The twelve angle stone", and can be found in the Hatum Rumiyoc street of Cusco. The wall it sits in is a famous example of Inca architecture, widely known for its fine masonry, which features precisely cut and shaped stones closely fitted without mortar.
