Macchu Picchu

April 10, 2009 -- "Found in a treasure-filled tomb of the Moche culture in Peru, this 1,500-year-old gilded-copper-and-seashell funerary mask was one of two that shielded the face of the so-called Lord of Ucupe."
(National Geographic News)

Inca maiden.

"The nose ornament protruding from one of the Lord of Ucupe's two funerary masks--the one that touched his face--is in the simpler, middle-Moche style. Because such artifacts were found layered with early-Moche-style objects, archaeologist Steve Bourget believes the entombment took place at a time of cultural transition."
