Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. Pachamama is usually translated as Mother Earth, but a more literal translation would be "Mother World."

When I visited Peru last fall, I learned several rituals honoring Pachamama. The symbol for Pachamama is a spiral which you find on handcrafted Peruvian jewelry and textiles.

I just finished creating the Pachamama symbol in my orchard honoring all the elements which harmonize to bring about the abundance of the fruit.

The fruit trees are caged because our neighborhood deer.
