Drawing of Inca Children

Drawing of Inca Children Ancient Places and/or Civilizations Social Studies Visual Arts

Dr. Johan Reinhard and his team found three Inca mummies (two girls and a boy) at the top of Mount Llullaillaco (yoo-yeye-YAH-co), an Argentinian volcano near the country's northwest border with Chile. 

Located at 22,000 feet (6,700 meters), and called the "Children of Llullaillaco,"  all three were sacrificed about five hundred years ago.

The three Llullaillaco mummies are cared-for at the Museum of High Mountain Archaeology (MAAM) in Salta, Argentina.  The Museum released this drawing of the children as they may have appeared in life.
