Unknown artist, Ttipqui pin, 1800s. Silver plated copper; 9½ in. Gift of Mrs. LeRoy Schwartz, 1954.156.
Single ttipqui pins were inserted diagonally to fasten mantles or capes at the neck. Sun and moon imagery, which figures prominently in both pre-Columbian and Christian art, is often seen on pins made during the colonial period.
