A wonderful Chimu nose ornament from Peru, ca. 1100 – 1450 AD. It is 2-1/2” in diameter, is made from silver and features a pair of nicely detailed monkeys climbing inside scroll designs. Perhaps meant to represent a tree, with the monkeys going after the fruit at the top. Intact, with strong mineral deposits.
