n4162 Rare metal artifacts

One of the sad aspects of the Spanish conquest was their greed and cultural barbarism, which
resulted in majority of American artwork being molten down by the Spanish for the value of the metal.
The more valuable are such rare examples of a pre-columbian art. Simply stunning.
