Moscow’s Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts opened a new exhibition – “1000 years of gold of the Incas’. It features over 80 unique gold and silver objects originating from the Inca Empire.
Only a small number of the gold treasures survived as many were melted by conquistadors in the 16th century. Specialists say that only the gold items that were buried in various sepulchers survived to this day.
The exhibition is run with the cooperation of the Gold Museum of Peru. It will be open till May, 26th.
