Atahualpa Artifacts

Satisfactory Essays
With Atahualpa as their hostage, the Spaniards began sacking the city, stripping sacred religious objects from the temples of the sun and moon. Atahualpa, saw that the Spaniards valued gold and silver so highly. Therefore he made Pizarro an offer he knew he could not refuse. In exchange for his freedom, The Emperor promised to fill his massive prison cell with gold that extended as high as Pizarro could reach his hand with two rooms with silver. This was one of the artifacts that was there. I picked this artifact because it looks unique and different I’m tired of always seeing the same stuff so I decided to chose this one.
