Commentary

"The Quimbaya inhabited Quindío, Caldas and Risaralda in Colombia, near the valley of the Cauca River. Although there is no clear evidence about when they were established, it is believed that is around the 1st century BCE. The Quimbaya people reached their peak during the 4th to 7th century CE. From this time comes the most significant part of this culture: the Poporo Quimbaya (currently exhibited in the Gold Museum). The most frequent designs in the art pieces are anthropomorphic, depicting men and women sitting, with closed eyes and placid expression."
