The Incas: Gold. Power. God. | 3.000 years of advanced cultures

Begin: 06.05.2017 10:00 hour End: 08.04.2018 19:00 hour

Extended until 8th April 2018

The Incas called it "the sun's beads", while the Spanish were only interested in its material value. The mythology of Inca gold is rooted in the irreconcilability of these two value systems. In this exhibition, the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site takes up where "IncaGold" (2004/2005) left off, presenting several new exhibits shedding insights into the civilizations of the Incan and pre-Incan periods.
