Tairona  200 B.C. - 1650 AD

The Tairona civilization is most renowned for its distinctive goldwork. The earliest known Tairona goldwork has been described for the Nequanje Period (from about 300 to 800 CE). Its use in the Tairona society appears to have extended beyond the elite, although little proof of this exists. The gold artifacts consist of pendants, lip-plugs, nose ornaments, necklaces, and earrings. Gold cast Tairona figure pendants (known as "caciques") in particular stand out among the goldworks of pre-Columbian America because of their richness in detail. The figurines depict human subjects - thought be noblemen or chiefs - in ornate dresses and with a large animal mask over the face.
