Fabulous Gold Pieces from Ancient Civilizations Jun 26, 2006
There is so much research and hard work contained in this book you can hardly believe it turns out easy to read as well as beautiful to look at. It has a fresh, original approach to an old science, describing the complete story of each culture: the environment, their beliefs, their techniques in art, construction, jewelry making, etc. It is very informative as well as compelling.
Show it off, it is THE coffetable book by excellence! This book on Calima and Malagana will immediately animate conversations and perhaps, set travel projects flowing!
