The Chimu culture flourished in northern Peru from 1000 CE until they were conquered by the Inca in 1470 CE. The Chimu culture was famous for its expertise in metal works, especially working with metals like gold and silver.
Unlike the Inca, the Chimu worshiped the moon and considered it more powerful than the sun, an idea they inherited from the Moche.
