The Labyrinth of Q’enqo is a spot to wrap one’s mind around. Here, a volcanic mound of granite has been carved every which way with many squared removals, and strange stair cases up and down its surface. There is also a 3 tiered open air and covered cave system that goes down 3 levels into and beneath the volcanic rock outcropping. A stone seat sits in the heart of this spot which though cut some how, also looks on its surface to have been melted as it is dripping (similar stones are found in Egypt that have been cured and polished using acid). Unsure of the quarts based granite here, but there are some great removals that make one wonder. I can understand cutting into the sides of a wall, but how do you remove the back with 90 degree angular precision? Almost looks like blocks of cut cheese.
