This is the first time this world-renowned exhibition is on display in St. Petersburg. It will offer visitors an exhaustive view of Inca traditions and rites, and of Andean cultures predating them, and that existed before the Spanish conquest.

The artefacts are on loan from the collection of the famous Gold Museum in Lima, Peru (Museo Oro Del Peru), which owns one of the largest private collections of pre-Columbian Peruvian art in the world. The Gold Museum of Peru was founded in 1960 by the Peruvian politician and collector Miguel Mujica Gallo.

“The Gold of the Inca Empire: God, Power, Eternity. 2000 Years of a Great Civilization” legendary exhibition offers the residents of St. Petersburg inhabitants and all Russians interested in art a rare opportunity to see the unique treasures of the sophisticated Inca civilization and the pre-Inca cultures. The gold of the Incas and those ancient peoples who brought forth the early cultures of Peru not only reflects the material riches accumulated during the pre-Columbian era but is also testament to the spiritual and artistic achievements of the early Indian peoples of Peru.
