The metallurgical pre-columbian cultures
are a technical and aesthetic compendium in which an
interpretation of social and religious relations of
Latin America´s native peoples is given. In the
metal worked pieces of Colombia we observe hammered,
repousse and nail or soldering jointed pieces.
The glint and the colour were essential.
Gold was the expression of the sun used to represent
man and earth, and silver, the expression of the moon
used to represent woman. Therefore, these objects had
a symbolical and mythical expression in pre-columbian
culture all around Latin America.
LUNA DEL SUR´s craftmen work fine
silver .925 manually to accomplish the reproductions
of these pieces recovering the mystical idea that had
the prehispanic groups. The ¨sur¨ is the geographical
location where the major splendour is, because of the
rescue of the ornamental value that have this work.
Thanks to pieces like nose ornaments, urns, anthropomorphic
and zoomorphic figures born the design to elaborate
earrings, necklaces, brooches, cuff links, key-rings,
pins, scarf rings and bracelets, adding to them semi-precious
gems and terra-cotta.
