National Archeological Museum in Lima
We have found some of the charm of Europe right here in Peru. We are learning more of the culture and history of Peru and are finding a little time here and there to visit a museum, or walk in beautiful gardens. Here t the Larco Herrera Museum in Lima we found a little of both.
The Bougainvillias were beautiful
This boat "huaca" intrigued me, I love boats, and sculptures from 1AD are really interesting
Here is a Noah's arc huaca
Now for the Inca gold collection, the most privative here was a strand of gold nuggets
These are all nose ring adornments, ouch! But beautiful!
This is the ceremonial gold, look at those earrings, they are huge
royalty and the very wealthy would be buried in this type of clothing
The gardens around the mansion were lovely
What a great way to spend a few hours
