Capturing the Sun - Pre Columbian Gold

Howard Nowes - 08/12/2017


The allure of gold adornments is universal and eternal. Gold possesses a power that captures the eye with even the slightest glimmer. Gold is magical in that it is inert and therefore never oxidizes, remaining lustrous and beautiful throughout time.

The technical mastery required to produce such sophisticated artifacts in gold and silver is worthy of deep investigation. Ancient pre-Columbian master craftsmen were as skilled at lost-wax casting, hammering, repoussé work, depletion gilding,Swiss Replica Watches and incising as any other cultures at the time, or since. The timelessness, beauty and ingenuity of these objects is as evident and relevant today as it was in ancient times.
