Gold Lizard

A few days ago I showed a gold frog from the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.  This is a gold lizard, or perhaps it is an iguana.

I guess it should not be a surprise that they would make gold jewelry in the shape of the animals around them.   Can you guess what other animals they might have used as subjects for their art?  I will show some additional examples in the days ahead.

This week we have photos from the Galapagos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

More animals? Monkeys? Horses? This example is beautifully crafted.

This lizard looks pretty fierce. I'm going to guess a bird will be next.

If that is made of solid gold it must be heavy. I think a turtle might be a good guess.

Many of this guy's non-gold descendants are running all over my lanai.

This is stunning! Hmmm, I,m thinking an insect of some sort might have been reproduced in gold.
