Archaeologists in northern Peru have discovered an ancient mural from the lost Caral civilization that is believed to be about 3,800 years old, officials reported. The discovery was made in the Vichama archaeological site. A team of excavators have brushed away earth from the mural to reveal figures that depict a toad that wraps its hands around the head of a man.

At a news conference in Lima, Archaeologist Tatiana Abad said that the mural represents the announcement of the arrival of water and also said it talks about the importance of water in times of crisis and the reflections that we can create from them.
