Pre-Columbian Gold Male Figure

$43,200

About

This figure comes from the Quimbaya-Urabá culture of Columbia and Panama. The figure represents a very important dignitary, which can be inferred by the multiple pieces of jewelry he is wearing, particularly evidenced in the elaborate headdress and the two scepters, held in each of the figure's hands. The figure is composed of Tumbaga gold, an alloy used during pre-Columbian times, composed of gold-copper or gold-silver. Provenance: Estate of Carlos Rodriguez
