This is a gilded Pre-Columbian brooch of a deity with an animal head or mask. The pin is in high relief and has a bright shiny gold finish that resembles the high carat gold of the original museum piece. Alva Museum Replicas made beautiful copies of ancient artwork and antiquities in major museums. The pieces were then sold in the gift shops. The New York City studio dissolved in the late 1970's or early 1980's.
