Ceremonial Knife Pendant

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. The knife pendant is adapted from a gold original found in San Pablo Choc?, Columbia, that dates to AD 800-1500. The design - symbolizing high status - is adapted from the shape of sacrificial knives that were used by priests.
