Ceremonial Boat

By Potra  
Another set of pieces from the Museum of Gold in Bogotá, Colombia.
The first of this reportage is the most sought after piece in the Museum, it is the last one and it is displayed alone.
I hope you enjoy them. It was a challenge to me!
If you would like to see more of the collection and a description of each piece, please take a look here.

Oh my dear Jennn! I was not expecting an award at all! I am really honored by your distinction.
I am so happy that you liked them, I shot the boat on my knees as I didn't have a tripod, making a bit of pressure against the glass to get the camera firm because the speed was pretty low. On top of everything my sister was mad at me because I was not talking to her by taking pics. hahhahaha, Homer and I in The Odyssey! Wink
Un beso para ti y muchas gracias!

Marian,
This is a wonderful series. These are very interesting pieces so well captured by you under less than ideal circumstances.
Thanks for including the commentary and the link. This is all so very informative.
