DescriptionMochica Copper Pendant of Coatimundi
C. 200-600 AD
The hammered copper disc features a delicate cutout image of a coatimundi jungle animal as he sits casually chewing on his own tail. A very natural, delicately portrayed image. The cultures of Peru used the raccoon-like animals as both pets and a food source. The copper pierced for suspension, probably an ornament to clothing, or as an offering within a mummy bundle, and has nice ancient verdi gris patina.
Estimate: $1,200 - $1,800.
