Rare Open-Eyed Viru Moche Gold Gilded Mask
Pre-Columbian, North Coast Peru, Viru Mochica Transition, ca 500 BCE-100 BCE. The Viru culture also known as the Gallinazo was a Pre-Columbian culture that flourished in the Viru Valley on the northwest coast of Peru and extended into the Moche and Santa Valleys. Like most ancient Andean cultures, these people produces masterful goldsmithery as we see in this example. This mask is a rare treasure. Not only is it beautifully gilded in gold, but it also presents an open-eyed visage. While close-eyed masks were created for the deceased, open-eyed masks were donned by dancers/actors performing ceremonial rituals. ~8-1/2"H x 7-5/8"W at widest point Provenance: Ex-Ian Arundel Collection, CA, collected 1950s-1960s All items in this auction are legal to buy/sell under U.S. statute covering cultural patrimony per United States Code 2600, CHAPTER 14 -- CONVENTION ON CULTURAL PROPERTY, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

Viking Stamp Decorated Bracelet - 63.6 grams
Northern Europe, Viking / Norse culture, ca. 8th to 11th century CE. An elegant hammered silver bracelet with a cast motif resembling a sunburst at its center and radiating triangular stamps flowing outward from the sunburst. The stamped triangle pattern was very popular in the Viking world, although its meaning is unknown. The sunburst may have been inspired by the fascinating visions that the Vikings encountered sailing above the Arctic Circle, where optical phenomena like false sunrises and sun dogs have been documented extensively. Size: 2.75" W (7 cm); 63.6 grams A piece such as this would have been made in a specialized workshop centered around a hearth, probably using the lost wax casting technique. The important Viking metalworking shops correspond to their great trading ports and proto-urban centers - Birka, Helgo, Sigtuna, and Lund in Sweden, Ribe, Haithabu (Hedeby), and Fyrkat in Denmark, and Kaupang and Trondheim in Norway. Silver was the principal currency of the Viking world, which stretched from Russia to northern Canada at the height of their influence. In many places, the Vikings kept silver not as coins, but as jewelry, a wearable currency form that was not subject to the authority of a monarch or mint. One of the most common archaeological finds from the Viking period is a hoard of metal objects, often buried in the earth or deposited in bodies of water, like river beds.

Ancient Dagestan Bronze Standing Idol
Western Asia, Dagestan Region, located on the northwestern shores of the Caspian Sea, ca. 1500 to 500 BCE. A miniature bronze standing idol, with hands raised in the classic style of the region and enormous palms turned to face outward. The rest of the body has exaggerated hips, a small phallus, and a belt. This particular item comes from the Caucasus, a little-studied region, with most academic studies done in Russian. These small bronze figures seem to have been part of an incredibly long artistic tradition; they look similar to clay ones created during the Neolithic period. At this same time, burials contain a tremendous number of weapons, and we believe that gods related to military prowess. Interestingly, Russian archaeologists have found some examples of these small idols buried with remains of clothing on them - perhaps why their bodies are so undecorated.

Rare Mayan Jaina Figural Rattle
Pre-Columbian, Mexico, Jaina Island, Maya, ca. 600 to 900 CE. A mold-made terracotta rattle in the form of an elite Mayan standing priest, lord, or possibly ball player donning an elaborate pectoral and yoke, holding a pair of pet chickens, with nice remains of white pigment on the surface. This piece is from Jaina Island, a small limestone island on the Yucatan Peninsula's Gulf coast with only a tiny inlet separating it from the mainland. Jaina served as an elite Maya burial site and is notable for its fine ceramic figurines excavated there. A wonderful mold-made rattle of a highly decorated fellow and his pet fowl - a rare piece from Jaina Island, also known as the "Island of Kings"!

Roman Republican Carnelian Oval Ringstone: Silenus
Roman Republic, ca. 1st century BCE. This is an orange-red carnelian (chalcedony with iron oxide) oval ringstone engraved with a portrait of Silenus, the tutor/follower of Dionysus, who here, as always, is depicted as an older man with a large, full beard. Themes of Dionysus and his followers were particularly popular during this time period, as control of the Mediterranean shifted from Greece to Rome. Some rulers even identified themselves with the god; for example, Ptolemy XII in Egypt pronounced himself the "New Dionysus". This oval would look beautiful set into a modern ring. Size: 0.45" W x 0.65" H (1.1 cm x 1.7 cm) Provenance: Ex-California Museum of Ancient Art All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
