Photographer's Note

This time I wanted to share with you another beautiful thing in Colombia: the pre-Columbian art.
Here is the website where you can go to learn more:
Museo del Oro
A unique collection of golden masterpieces!

The Banco de la Repblica Gold Museum, in Bogota, Colombia, displays an extraordinary selection of its pre-Hispanic goldwork collection - the biggest in the world. Together with other pottery, stone, shell, wood and textile archaeological objects, these items testify to the life and thought of different societies which inhabited what is now known as Colombia before contact was made with Europe.
