Artwork[edit]

They made artwork out of materials such as wood, strings, and wool.[1] Their work sometimes took the form of shaft burials.[2][3] Their pottery reached important artistic development, being recognizable by its forms and decoration, emphasizing the negative painting or positive bicolor. Their jewelry work stands out for the large gold pectorals, nose rings, discs and plaques, all made with fine gold sheets and with complex geometric designs.[4]
