Details

The Lord of Sipan, was the name given to an excavated mummy of the Moche culture. He reigned approximately 200 A.D and died about 40 years of age. His tomb was uncovered in 1987 in Sipan, located in northern Peru, close to the coast. The mummy was found in one of Sipan's mausoleums built by the Moche who ruled in the area from the time of 1 AD to 700 AD, centuries prior to the Incas.

Discovery of the tomb represented one of the most important archaeological finding in recent times, and the collection has traveled throughout the world.

Sipan's treasures show us the Moche'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.
