From January 21 to May 30 2013, the exhibition Rafael Larco Hoyle: Pioneering founder of the pre-Columbian museum will present the unique story of that Peruvian archaeologist and founder of the Larco Museum. Situated in Lima, this museum houses the most important collection of the artifacts produced by the many pre-Columbian cultures of Peru. Fascinating photographs provide a previously unseen window into the earliest stages of Peruvian archaeology, at the beginning of the 20th century, a time when tomb raiding brought to light invaluable treasures.

Designed in two parts, this exhibition continues with the presentation of Motché Paris-Lima: Homage to pre-Columbian jewelry. The theme of the display is Andean duality, and visitors are invited to experience for themselves the first exclusive collection of pre-Columbian style jewelry created by Carole Fraresso.
