A Zenú (Sinú) queen from the warm flood plains of the Colombian Caribbean. She is wearing earrings, done in the technique of false filigree. The forehead ornament and the pectoral are made of tumbaga, a gold-silver-copper alloy, and of emeralds. Typical of the Zenú style are staff tops in the form of humans, animals and supernatural beings like the one which adorns her staff. Societies of farmers and goldsmiths constructed an extraordinary network of hydraulic drainage canals, which enabled them to control the floods and make use of extensive areas for dwelling, fishing and crop growing. The reconstruction is based on female figures depicted with cloaks and painted or decorated bodies, and on gold ornaments.
In fact do you have plans to make draws of the Chimú, the Ecutorian cultures or the Wari empire?
Indeed, Chimu and Wari material culture is spectacular. There is abundance of archaeological evidence on both cultures which eases a reconstruction. But right now my focus is on the Isthmo-Colombian Area, so a drawing of a pre-Columbian Ecuadorian might be more likely. But: Postponed is not abandoned.
