The first series "Encounter in Puruchuco" is from the Pre-Inca Culture: the Ychmas "and belongs to Peru. The Ychmas masterfully built the Citadel of Puruchuco in adobe, about 16 km north from Lima, in the fourteenth century It is a sacred space where the Lord of Puruchuco lived with his family and
servants; it was like a kind of feudal lord wearing a "feathered hat" symbol of to have a high thought, was the one who ruled in that territory. The construction of the Citadel is a minimalist work with good Feng-Shui. The author Gustavo Garcia Roig used to go to Meditate and to practice Yoga, in the 70s / 80s, when he lived in Lima; he felt an Harmonic Energy in their spaces, among other peculiarities is that it has no right angles in its construction but curves.

The second serie is about Celtic Cultures, "The inhabited world" with photographies of the Dolmen de Axeitos [Ribeira / Coruña) based in a European medieval oral tradition where a wild horse and a deer want the Dolmen be occupied with human beings.
