The Alegorías or allegories is a tradition here in Cusco as part of the festivities for the anniversary of the city every month of June.
Students of the Escuela de Bellas ArtesDiego Quispe Tito build huge sculptures a few days before the Inti Raymi feast and walk around the main square.
The sculptures depict a variety of topics from animals to politicians and local people really enjoy watching them. Each float has its own group of musicians and even dancers. At the end, a jury choses the best sculptures.
The good point is that the images stay one more day at the Plaza Espinar, near the La Merced church, so local and foreign people still have the chance to take pictures beside these funny and original sculptures.
