Wiracocha is the main deity of the Tiwanaku religion known until now. Their mythology says that Wiracocha came out of the waters and created the heavens and the earth. This invisible god required a level of intellect and was reserved for the Tiwanaku ruling class. As other Tiwanaku gods, Wirachocha was a nomad and had a permanent company, the Inti bird, a magical bird which was all-knowing. This god was worshipped and represented through icons like those found on the Gate of the Sun, where it has a head surrounded by a shining aurea, among these, animal-like figures like the heads of certain predators. On his face he has the profile of a puma.
