Pair of Ear Pendants


Not on view

This grandiose pair of ear pendants illustrates the size such ornaments attained in ancient Colombia. Their suspension asssemblies have remained, remarkably, intact; the parts frequently became separated, leaving only the disks to indicate the original scale of the whole. Many ear-pendant disks were suspended with only gold hoops, which were easily changed or removed.
