An abstract piece in front of the Richmond Art Center. The piece is made out of tubular and rectangular pieces of aluminum. There's a diagonal support that goes through the piece. There are also some contoured-like rolls of hills.

The title comes from the area Canchis, near Cuzco, where the artist lived during his Peace Corps stint. Aragon was the name of the family he stayed with. The sculpture is the third piece in a series about landscape and "counting coup."
