Tumbaga (gold and copper alloy) mask with nose ornament and filed teeth, from the Early Quimbaya culture of present-day Colombia (500BC – AD700). Am1910,1202.5.
Small mask in the shape of a human face with the eyes closed, made in tumbaga by lost-wax casting. It wears nose-ornament and shows limed teeth. Given its small size, it was probably not used as a mask; it might have been part of another object or used assembled to an image of another material. Three rectangular danglers were attached in each side by the ears but just five remain.
500 - 700 BC Height: 12 centimetres Width: 12 centimetres Depth: 4.5 centimetres
