Peruvian priestess of Lambayeque

Pyramids at Túcume, a Lambayeque city
In 2011 archaeologists with the Hans Bruning National Archeological Museum of Lambayeque, Peru, found mummified remains while excavating the Chotuna-Chornancap pyramid complex on the Pacific Coast.

Based on the wealth of her burial, researchers said she was one of the most powerful people in the Lambayeque region. They estimated her age at 25 to 30 years.
The Peruvian priestess was found propped in a seated position. She was adorned with a copper mask, an elaborate crown and gold earspools.

Her body was clothed in textiles woven with copper plates, necklaces made of carved shells and colored beads. She also had with her a gold scepter with the image of a Lambayeque god.
The Lambayeque culture dated from about 800 to 1375 AD. Because few artifacts of these people have been recovered little is known about the beginnings of the civilization.

Based on burial practices, they appear to have been a highly stratified society and apparently had several ranks of nobility. People of high status were buried deep in shafts, seated and had with them different types of exotic grave artifacts.
