Description
Since the dawn of time, the jewelry with which a person adorns himself has been a barometer of social status and rank. It is easy to imagine that the individual who wore this elegantly simple crescent of gold in ancient Peru was a tribal chief or a warrior of renown. We can picture him-- majestic, mysterious, a little aloof-- a man given stature by this golden armor for the face. - (PF.1017)
