Abstract: This presentation presents pictures and layouts of Buena Vista in Peru, a temple that has the oldest calendar found in the world, and the first preceramic three dimensional sculptures found in the New World. It is an example of a site with astrological alignment, orientated to the constellations associated with water, The Fox and The Flame (animals that appear in a mural) and aligned with the sunrise.
