This Chavin 23-24K pure gold hammered pendant or nose ornament depicts the Chavin Monster/Dragon swallowing some poor sap whole with his head sticking out of the monster's mouth and blood spurting out of the top of his head. It is paper thin and 1 5/8" in diameter. This grizzly macabre scene is a true piece of pre-Columbian art. It has been verbally authenticated by a forensic laboratory specializing in pre-Columbian gold that uses 10 steps to pass authentication. I purchased it in 1996 and have the original receipt. Please view my youtube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfVKrA7pteY. Due to a recent diagnosed major health problem, I have dropped the price of this piece and all my items by at least 50% to at or below the price I paid many years ago. Now is the time to pick up a great deal. My loss is your gain. This piece was $5000.
