Free exhibition at University of Toronto Art Centre

TORONTO, Jan. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Luminescence: The Silver of Peru is the largest collection of its kind ever seen in Canada. The exhibition features 140 silver artifacts, some of which have never left Peru and one-of-kind national treasures that hold over 2,000 years of history. The pieces were selected from private collections and national museums to form an exclusive exploration of silver throughout Peruvian history and culture.

The exhibition is curated by The University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology (MOA) Director, Dr. Anthony Shelton, in collaboration with the Patronato Plata del Perú. Thanks to main sponsor Pan American Silver Corp. and contributing sponsors CIBC and the Silver Institute, Luminescence is a brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime show!

Highlights:


    --  The two surviving 19th century Silver Dance Crowns
    --  Two of only three existing ceremonial silver tunics dating back
        to 1450 AD
    --  Three golden headdresses worn by pre-Columbian lords
