This exhibition presents more than 120 pieces of goldwork created by artists and artisans from an ancient American society in central Panama. Drawn from the collection of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum) in Philadelphia, the exhibition includes large embossed plaques, cast pendants and nose ornaments, gold-sheathed ear rods, and bead necklaces, as well as polychrome ceramics.
