The first of a series of pendants inspired by aerial views of ancient monuments and archaeological sites.
Excavated in 2001, the site on the north-western coast of Peru, is dated to the Early Horizon Period. Chanquillo was a fortified ceremonial complex with a temple at its centre, although the site was used for cylindrical observations, with 13 towers built on a nearby ridge being used for orientation points.
Pendant 42mm high, sterling silver, hallmarked.
Gold version available in 9-22 carat, POA.
The pendant is despatched in a presentation box with a brief background of the Chanquillo site.
