Goddess of the Moon, Mama Quilla was an important deity for the people of the Incan Empire which flourished in the Andes region of South America from the 12 century AD until the Spanish conquest of the 1500s. In Incan mythology, she was the daughter of Viracocha, the creator god, and wife and sister of the sun god Inti. Legend also credited her as the mother of Manco Capa and Mama Ocllo, founders of Cusco, capital city of the Incan empire.
Revered for preventing the world falling into complete darkness, Mama Quilla was believed to shed Silver tears that fell to earth and could be mined as precious metal.
