This highly unique Tairona gold ornament is an extraordinary example of the distinctive gold work of this ancient culture. Crafted of 20.8K gold, the intriguing design would have once been worn at the center of one's chest as a symbol of status and power. Renowned for both its masterful casting and its exquisite detail, Tairona goldwork is among the finest and most sought after of all pre-Columbian artifacts.

The Tairona civilization of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region in northern Colombia is renowned for producing some of the grandest and most complex gold objects ever made. TExamples of goldwork from this region include pendants, nose ornaments, lip plugs, necklaces, and earrings. Gold and stone pieces such as this served as important symbols of rank and power in Tairona culture.
