A hill in the northeast Argentina that holds cave paintings, which was considered to be a sacred place before the Incan conquest of the region in the 15th c. has been identified. Cerro Kawsay (Hill of Life, in the Quechua language) seems to have been a sacred place since between 900-1000 A.D, although it could be from the Formative period (500 A.D). Of the 329 chiseled or carved figures, 267 are zoomorphic and most are representations of llamas, linked to the origin myths of the Inca people.
