Half Hoops 24k gold over brass/bronze
SINU Half Hoops
The SINU people emerged in the fertile flood plains of the Caribbean lowlands of present-day northern Colombia. Collectively the various Sinú groups or communities, as well their ancestral territory, are also referred to as the GRAN ZENU or FINZENU.
Sinu Half Hoops are inspired by an intricate nasal ornamnet from the Sinu pre-columbian civilization in Colombia, hand-made and gold plated in 24k.
For the Sinu, gold was the source of power – used as a form of ceremonial adornment, as well as an essential medium for expressing social, religious, and ritual themes.
Sinu Earrings are a replica of a nasal ornamnet from the Sinu pre-columbian civilization in Colombia, the original piece is currently displayed at the Museum of Gold in Bogota- Colombia.
