Ancient Oro

This is one of my favorite pictures that I have taken. It is from El Museo Del Oro, or the Museum of Gold in Bogota, Colombia. These earrings were one of many gold embellishments worn by the native Colombian tribes dating back to before the 1600s. Gold to them was not money as in today’s standards, but worn for everyone to see. This is one of the reasons why the Spanish conquered Colombia then, because it was a country rich with gold.
