Last Saturday, we ventured over to the Mesoamerican Galleries to check out some sweet Peruvian earflares. Gallery 358 houses the Precolumbian Gold Treasury, which has the highest gold:work ratio in the Met! (We kindly refer to the area as the bling room.)
Featured above is a Pair of Earflares, Winged Messengers, ca. 3rd to 7th Centuries.
