The chakana (or Inca Cross) is a stepped cross made up of an equal-armed cross indicating the cardinal points of the compass and a superimposed square. The square is suggested to represent the other two levels of existence.
The stepped cross with four corners, ridged with three steps each is called the Incan cross or “Chacana”. The Chakana symbolizes the dynamic between the universe and the life it contains. Each of the three steps of one corner is believed to have meaning:
The first quarter of the cross represents energetic tiers or worlds:
The lower world (Uqhu Pacha) represented the underworld and death
The middle world (Kay Pacha) represented the world of human life
The upper world (Hanan Pacha) included the stars, celestial beings and gods
The second quarter represents their revered animals, corresponding to these worlds:
The snake, living underground, represented the lower world
The puma, a powerful land animal represented the middle world
The condor represented the upper world in the sky
The third quarter symbolizes 3 commandments of Incas:
don’t be lazy
The fourth – the human principals:
love and well doing
