The exact location where the mummy of the pre inca “Chachapoyas” culture that inspired the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch to paint "The Scream", was found according to the German researcher Stefan Ziemendorff, who argued that the site matches the story of Pierre Vidal- Senèze, who in 1877 arrived in Chachapoyas (northen area of Peru) in search for objects to do business in Europe.

Vidal- Senèze extracted four mummies, but only took with him the one corresponding to a warrior of Chachapoyas culture, which was exhibited at the Ethnographic Museum of Trocadéro in Paris where the norwegian painter Edvard Munch watched it and painted later using it as inspiration.
