A collection of artifacts from Peru’s ancient Moche culture will be on display at the Ethnography Museum of Geneva (MEG), in Switzerland.

Renowned for their monumental architecture, crafts and skills, in particular as metal workers, the Moche society inhabited the north coast of Peru during the Early Intermediate Period (AD 100–800).

From November 1st, 2014 through May 3rd, 2015, the exhibition “Mochica kings: Divinity and power in ancient Peru” will be showcasing latest treasures unearthed from the tomb of the Lord of Ucupe, buried between 340-540 CE.
