    Gold: pre-hispanic art of Colombia

    Presented by at Bowers Museum of Cultural Art

    March 31 - July 1, 2012


    Gold: pre-hispanic art of Colombia

    Pre-Hispanic gold, on loan from the renowned Museo del Oro and the Banco de Republica, Bogota, Colombia. National treasures and more than two hundred exquisite gold figures and ornaments in this stunning exhibition give testament to the unparalleled mastery of gold, considered a gift of the gods. In conjunction with this exhibit, Bowers will have on display an ornately carved emerald rosary recovered from the sunken Spanish warship, the “Nuestra Senora di Atocha.” During the 1600s the Spanish conquers of the New World shipped tons of gold, silver and copper back to their mother country. This treasure had been in its underwater tomb for over 350 years. On opening day there will be a distinguished lecture.
