Image of Tunjas made from mixed media


Join us for this art based activity exploring the Muisca civilisation who lived in the lands now known as Columbia, between 600 and 1600 CE. They had a fascination with gold and used it to produce huge numbers of Tunjos. Tunjos are small figures usually made of gold. They were used as votive offerings to their gods and provide us with a window into their lives, beliefs and practices. Participants will have the opportunity to create rubbings from Tunjo models. 


When: 1 pm – 3 pm, Thursday 17th August

Where: The Captains’ Room, The Hunt Museum
