A remarkable copper crown dating back circa 200-1100 AD. Sicán-Moche Culture, transition period. Lambayeque Valley Peru. This rare crown featuring the head of a warrior face Nylamp on front, with intense eyes, broad nose and open mouth, left and right birds, the upper part of the crown depicting round and chromatic design. The front part of the crown is half round rising above the circular crown. Created by repoussé technique. The lower round part of the crown to fit on top of the ruler, is composed by stepped wave elements, separated made, linked on the round crown base.
Archaeological studies have revealed that Moche cities were governed by warrior-priest rulers. Depictions on Sicán and Moche pottery have revealed that these rulers oftentimes wore elaborate crowns, often depicted in a crescent shape like this example.
Only King's and religious figures of high status wore such adornments. Pre-Colombian artisans excelled in metalwork; gold, silver and copper funerary masks plundered from ancient tombs give witness to their skill and taste. The quality is so high that the image could have been pressed in and hammered over leather molds. Moche was a powerful ancient state on the north coast of present-day Peru.
Repoussé or repoussage is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal (such as gold leaf) is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side. Chasing is the opposite technique to repoussé, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. Whilst repoussé is used to work on the reverse of the metal to form a raised design on the front, chasing is used to refine the design on the front of the work by sinking the metal. The term chasing is derived from the noun "chase", which refers to a groove, furrow, channel or indentation. The adjective form is "chased work". The techniques of repoussé and chasing utilize the plasticity quality of metal, forming shapes by degrees. There is no loss of metal in the process, as it is stretched locally and the surface remains continuous. The process is relatively slow, but a maximum of form is achieved, with one continuous surface of sheet metal of essentially the same thickness. Direct contact of the tools used is usually visible in the result.
