At a Glance

In the Incan and Pre Incan societies the concept of wealth differs from the one that came from Europe. While the ancient Peruvians considered the produce of mother earth the most precious good one can have, the Spanish conquistadors preferred gold and silver. The Peruvian cultures used these metals for ceremonial purposes, as offerings for their gods and also for social distinction, since only those related to the gods could wear metal objects. For thousands of years the most beautiful pieces were made to embellish temples, palaces and the nobles. In this lecture we will be introduced to this ancient Peruvian art, we will discover their most important techniques, some of which were totally unknown in the rest of the world by then and we will also analyze the huge impact the Peruvian metals had in the economy of Spain and the rest of the world for almost 300 years of Spanish colonization.
