Details

The Lord of Sipan, of the Moche culture, reigned approximately 200 A.D and died about 40 years of age. . His tomb was uncovered in 1987. Sipan is located in northern Peru, close to the coast. Four tombs were found in Sipan's Huaca Rajada, a mausoleum built by the Moche culture that ruled in the area from the time of Christ to 700 AD, centuries prior to the Incas.

Discovery of the tomb was dubbed “The Golden Wonder” by Time magazine, and National Geographic covered the finding in an article called “Discovering the Richest Tomb in the New World.” It represents the most important archaeological finding of recent times, and the collection has traveled throughout the world.

Sipan's treasures show us the Moche culture's mastery of metallurgy and quality use of several metals: gold, silver, copper and precious stones unrivaled in the Americas including masks, necklaces, earrings and other elaborate jewelry.
