About the Quimbaya metallurgy

The Quimbaya lived in valleys in farming and mining communities. Early Quimbaya people cast very fine objects such as poporos - a container with a lid that holds the lime powder that is chewed, together with coca leaves, to facilitate the absorption of stimulants - inspired by plant forms. Most of the cast pieces, either solid or hollow with openwork, were skilfully produced by the technique known as the lost-wax method. These pieces were modelled in beeswax and fully enveloped with several layers of fine clay. Once finished, the mould was fired and the melted wax left its form on the inside. The molten gold-copper alloy, called tumbaga, was then poured into the mould to cast the final piece.
