Unique Gold Shaman Pendant, Panama
Weighing over 55 grams and measuring 3 ¼” in height, this wonderfully crafted anthropomorphic 20-22K gold image (H4154) is said to represent a shaman. Attributed to the Veraguas horizon in Panama, c.500-1200AD, it is one of three different available images that can be put in a row to depict the transformation sequence of shaman to his animal form, in this case a caiman, the South American crocodile. With a bale attached to the recessed back, this powerful piece can be worn. You’ll seldom find or see an example of Precolumbian gold work as stunning as this. This piece was evaluated and authenticated by Stoetzer, Inc., of Miami (who will provide a certificate at an additional cost). A truly fabulous gold treasure that comes with a small display card, a map of Panama highlighting the Veraguas area, and a certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
