"Tairona Gold Mask"
Small mask of Tairona culture in gold. This important mask is made with a thin layer of gold by the lost wax method, and it was used as a pendant or amulet. It represents the face of a male character (tribal chief or shaman?) With open eyes, large eyebrows, small earrings on the ears and two small holes on the top that served to hang him on the neck . Its origin is the Sierra de Santa Marta in Colombia, in the years 900-1700 AD. It is important to note that the mask has traces of dirt and a small crack near the nose. It is a very rare piece of great cultural value. Weight: 6 gr.
