On the origin of the image one doesn't have a lot of knowledge, but it is counted three versions:


It is said that the Mr. of the Cane it was found in the canes by the workers that will proceed to burn the cane of a barracks in that same instant; but, when seeing that it could not burn the workers they were missed and they thought that they were miraculous those canes. Later on, the workers entered to the barracks of canes and you econontraon with the surprise that there was an image; for that that, they warned then to the pattern of that, this it arrived and it ordered to retire the image and starting from there he/she gave the order that every year it was carried out since the employer party it was a miraculous image.


He/she has to do with an experience of the own farmers, of that then, particularly it is Rafael's experience Larco Herrera. He came from trip in their light plane; this had a damage in the middle of flight, when seeing that it could not control the light plane don Rafael Larco Herrera, in spite of not being religious, in the face of the fear and fear of dying began to pray to God saying him/her that if he/she survived starting from the date he committed to make him/her an employer party; in that moment, it left him/her the words of the Mr. of the Cane.

So much was the request that the light plane begins to take flight and it recovers its address. Starting from there, it was carried out the employer party and that religiously one comes executing every year.


That that historically can mention you it is that in 1845 Don Hipólito Bracamonte, owner of Chiclín in that time, making an inventory of the country property and of the Chapel it figures the image of the Mr. of the Cane. But in 1891 when the Treasury of Chiclín was Ríos' gentlemen's property Pinillos, this Chapel was destroyed almost in its entirety by a strong alluvium, for what these decided to take the religious images, and among them that of the Mr. of the Cane, to Trujillo. In 1929 when the new owner was Don Rafael Larco Herrera and family, the Christian faith of the residents of Chiclín, recovers force and strength, in a yearning raise a new Temple again in the they could surrender cult to God Almighty.

It was then that the son of that, Rafael Larco Hoyle who decided to support such a purpose and to look for an image to place it there, wanting that the new chapel is dedicated to the old Pattern of the country property. In this made, he/she remembered that in one of the visits to the Convent of San Agustín of Trujillo the father Luis Stream had taught him/her some images forgotten in the Convent and that one caused him/her particular impression, one with sweet and compassionate look, was the Mr. of the Cane. It is this image the one that he requested, in another visit, to the father Stream, without knowing that it was about the blessed image of the Mr. of the Cane. After remaining the image, already in Chiclín, some kept years, the siblings Larco Hoyle in 1931 decides to place the image in the altar, taking advantage of the visit of Sra. María Larco of Dogni and its son, Sr. Carlos Dogni Larco, and August of this year 8 the new Chapel is blessed, being them the godfathers. To the 2 months of this event, the father Stream in a visit that made to Srta. Virginia Of Ríos Pinillos, the old owners' of the Treasury daughter Chiclín, commented him/her that it had been chosen as pattern to an image that had been abandoned in San Agustín of Trujillo by many years. Which would not be their surprise, when Srta. Virginia, told him/her that the Mr. that had given I/you/he/she was the original "Mr. of the Cane", Pattern of Chiclín that in the year 1891 had been a correspondent with other images to San Agustín's temple. Of the story that precedes it is deduced that I eat for divine inspiration, it returned to Chiclín the miraculous image of our "Mr. of the Cane" to stay and to be worshipped by their town.

Constituted the religious festivity in honor to the "Mr. of the Cane" in the year 1932 for Don Rafael Larco and there being you fact position for 5 years, necessary era to take charge the celebrations to an institution that, at the same time, it assumed the administration of these occupations, it was met to prepare the material and spiritual resources that an employer party of this magnitude required, maintaining the customs of the older dispersed towns in the coast, mountain and forest of the country. It is as well as Don Rafael Larco Hoyle founds December of 1937, 20 the Fraternity of the "Mr. of the Cane", aided by the congregation of Carmelite Parents of Chocope, this institution throughout 77 years has maintained a surprising dynamism, constituted by respectable people that have known how to capture the religious fervor of our town.
