Though the Sicán civilization (800 to 1375 CE) created 85 per cent of Peru’s existing gold artifacts, the Incas mistakenly got

all the credit until the 1991 discovery of an unlooted Sicán lord’s tomb and its 1.2 tonnes of grave goods. More than 120 intricately crafted objects, including the nobleman’s death mask made out of a single gold sheet just 0.6 mm thick, are dazzlingly displayed as part of Ancient Peru Unearthed at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum until Aug. 6.
