What Does Amaru Mean?
Amaru means ‘serpent’ in Quechua, the language of the Quechuans (popularly known as the Incas). The name Amaru was taken by many of the Inca kings, including the last, Tupac Amaru, to symbolize their power and authority.
The Quechuan Empire, dating from 1197 to 1533, was the largest in pre-Columbian America. Highly advanced in their knowledge of mathematics, geometry, astronomy and cosmology, Quechuan doctors used crystal and metal instruments in successful cranial surgeries. The Quechuans also invented the silver-crown dental procedure and were the first to vulcanize rubber. They are perhaps best known for their magical mountaintop city of Machu Picchu in Peru.
We chose the name Amaru to symbolize the skill, imagination and timeless aesthetic we strive to harness for our clients.
