Wiracocha is the good of creation or the substance from which all things are created and intimately associated with the sea. Wiracocha created the universe, sun, moon and stars, time and civilization itself. He was represented as wearing the sun for a crown, with thunderbolts in his hands, and tears descending from his eyes as rain.
