Photographs from Bogota's Museo del Oro

By Jack Brummet, Precious Metals Ed.

Bogota's Museo del Oro contains more gold than all the other museums I've seen across the world put together.  Gold is so interlinked with the history and destiny of Colombia that it's inevitable they have this museum.  It ranges from fascinating to amusing.  

My love of museums most often focuses on those that contain paintings (portraits in particular, and sculptures), but this was a glorious exception.  Naturally, I was most fascinated with the faces and masks, but I also include some other pieces here.  Even a couple that are not made of gold, like the carved stone diorama immediately below:
