The Lord of Sipan

The Lord of Sipan

COUNTRY PERU

In 1987 the world's media announced a major archaeological discovery, which was called "El Señor de Sipan" (The Lord of Sipan) located in the Lambayeque Region of the Province of Chiclayo, District of Zaña, Annex of Sipan, Township of Huaca Rajada.

The discovery of "El Señor de Sipan" was an exceptional event, during which shards of pottery, huacos, burial urns, tombs and excavations appeared in a very haphazard fashion, as well as some rooms and storehouses that were used by the first inhabitants of the city. The important thing though, was that this place had been sealed and was still untouched.

One of the most spectacular items found in the tomb of the "Old Lord of Sipan" was a necklace composed of ten gold beads, each depicting a spider in the center of its web with a body in the form of a human head.
