Tarascan Copper Ring

Tarascan Copper cast ring. West Mexico Ca. 1000 -1500 AD. Acquired in 2005 for study and restoration. When removing the verdigris, an image appeared as of a Human skull head with elaborate nose piercing or possibly a Tic with scrolling arms depending of view point. Naturally, patina has reformed after thirteen years. Some metal loss is visible otherwise in nice state of preservation. Comes with display stand.

Measures 3/4" in dia.

Authenticated by Dr. Robert Pickering of the Denver Museum of Natural History for HD Enterprises in 2003.

Provenance: Hank Johnson, HD Enterprises, Denver, Co. ; Lynn Langdon Estate of Buhl, ID, Acquired in the 1940s.
