SILVER COLLECTION

Museo Pedro de Osma

Mining was a significant asset in Peru, not only as a resource for its national coffers, but also for the creation of religious artifacts.

Following the Seville tradition, a large number of liturgical objects were created for different Catholic rituals: silver crosses...

monstrances...

... Eucharistic deposits, like this pelican-shaped one,...

incense containers...

They were used, inter alia, in liturgical ceremonies, religious processions, worship, or as altar ornaments.
