The tree of life is a fundamental archetype in many of the world’s mythological, religious, and philosophical traditions. It is closely related to the concept of the sacred tree. In Peru, all of nature is sacred and spiritual, including rocks, trees, mountains, and valleys. At the top of Macchu Picchu is a tree that stands as the most famous of the Incan ruins. The famous tree in the middle of the ruins, with Huayna Picchu in the background, stands as a testament and model for the “tree of life.”
