Tombas (Earrings) diam. 6.5 cm, copper. These copper tombas are decorated with circular geometric forms of an almost perfect circumference. These works were worn during important ceremonies. Two faces are engraved in the centres. Possibly evoking the dignitary to whom they were attached. On the back we can see the copper attachments of the circular forms. The centers are hollowed out to draw the faces of the dignitary on the other side. This object is too altered to identify to which civilization it belongs.
