I went to an exhibition of treasures of ancient Peru – sculptures, vessels, textiles, jewellery, masks – spanning 2500 years. I walked around 3 times – overview, then more slowly then back to the peices i liked most.
I particularly liked the symbols used on many of the items for their simplicity in shape and direct symbolic meanings eg duality (male-female, sun-moon), three levels of existence (sky, earth, sea).
Not quite sure how some of the jewellery were worn – earrings the diameter of an orange and nose rings bigger than the wearers face.
Sorry about the cat – the way I’ve done the legs makes it look like a strange kangaroo.
