SECHIN & TRANFER TO TRUJILLO
The characters represented in the monoliths on the facades are of two kinds. The warrior-priests (dressed with a weapon or scepter) and the dismembered victims or their remains (mainly heads, limbs, skewered eyes, intestines, vertebrae and viscera), creating a macabre scene. All these figures represent humans, without the presence of demigods or animals
Another theory is that the site was a laboratory for high anatomical studies, which would explain the explicit exposure of various parts of the human body, such as viscera and bones. Another position holds that it is the representation of a popular rebellion bloodily crushed by the ruling elite.
For Federico Kauffman Doig it would be a staging of human sacrifices, within the framework of a cult that sought to ensure the livelihood of the population and counteract famines caused by droughts or other onslaught of nature
