Präkolumbianischer Frosch-Anhänger

Long before the arrival of the Europeans and others, Native people of Latin America had mastered many metallurgical techniques, including mining, hammering, and casting gold to produce jewelry, ornaments, masks, and other items. In ancient Latin America, gold symbolized power and spiritual wealth, but was never used for money. Throughout Latin America, frogs are associated with rain and water. Frog symbolism is commonly in ceremonies to bring rain. The frog jewelry and figurine is adapted from a cast gold originally found in Chiriqu?, Panama, that dates to AD 1000-1200.
