Incan Sun God

Also known as APU-PUNCHAU

Mighty Inca God of the Sun

Very important and powerful, he’s the father of legendary MANCO-CAPAC and the sunny son of VIRACOCHA. His name is so sacred that even those granted to utter it must do so soundlessly. Obviously we can’t give you any help with the pronunciation.

He’s represented as a golden sun disc with a shining face. Incan emperors were believed to be the manifestation of INTI on Earth and were thus hot-tempered and prone to sunspots.
