The collection of the Gold Museum of the Banco de la República de Colombia—one of the most impressive gold collections in the world—is explored in this anthropological commemoration of the goldwork mastery of indigenous peoples. An essential part of the pre-Colombian world, gold was considered by natives to be a sacred element and was used by artisans to create offerings presented by Shamans to the Gods as both prayerful sacrifices and symbols of gratitude.

La colección del Museo del Oro del Banco de la República de Colombia—una de las colecciones de oro más importantes del mundo—está explorada en esta conmemoración antropológica de la maestría indígena para dominar las artes de la orfebrería. Una parte esencial del mundo precolombino, el oro era considerado un elemento sagrado y se usaba para crear las ofrendas ritualistas que el chamán presentaría a los dioses con miras a halagarlos y atraer sus favores.
