The symbology of the design

Inti

Inti is known as the Sun God in Incan beliefs. The Sun God, like all of the other gods and goddesses, is based on an element of nature, such as its apposite symbol, the moon mother, Mama Quilla. Inti is believed to be the god that looks over and takes care of people on earth. It is common for boys in Peru to be named after the Sun God, Inti, while girls are named after the moon goddess, Quilla.
