Narino Gold Embossed Ornament
A Pre-Columbian Narino gold embossed circular ornament decorated with a feline head.
These ornaments have a suspension on the rim and were either ear ornaments or pendants. The designs vary, from concentric circles to heads in high relief, ranging from human to animal faces. The feline face is the largest of the head types.
Formerly in the Jan Mitchell collection, acquired prior to 1980.
