Discoverer: Luis Briones
In 2008, for the first time, the archaeologist Luis Briones Morales saw in satellite images what seemed to be a great and unprecedented rupestrian figure, standing out on the sands of the driest desert in the world, a legacy of the ancestral cultures of northern Chile. This was the Retamilla Sun Geoglyph, located in the Atacama Desert. "The geoglyphs are generally recorded in the surroundings of paths that make up the great historical pedestrian network," explained Morales. These paths lead to vestiges that date back to a pre-Hispanic era, whose presence is explained by the importance of astronomical events in the region. These figures were a reflection of "their ways of 'seeing' the territory to which they belonged, their cosmovision in harmony with the environment, their orientations, among other communicational possibilities", according to the expert. It is believed that their main reason for existence was to point out or mark solstice dates. So, this great sun, the creator of everything that exists on earth, found on the eastern edge of the unexplored Pampa del Tamarugal, was chosen to become the logo for the new image of Espíritu de Chile Wines -Explorador, Intrépido and Viajero- designed to live a unique experience connected with nature. Thus, the label of each one of them represents this millenary art, and an invitation to venture and travel Chile through the wines of the different valleys of this country.
