Gold Pendant of a Shaman Holding a Double-Headed Snake - FJ.6158, Origin: Costa Rican/Panamanian Border Area, Circa: 500 AD to 1550 AD, Dimensions: 3.5" (8.9cm) high, Collection: Pre-Columbian, Style: Pre-Columbian, Medium: Gold. The male figure sits with his knees bent, feet extended over the curved lower bar. With both hands he clutches the heads of a stylized snake, the rope-like body of which is draped over his lap and groin area above his exposed genitals. Sprouting from the sides of his head are two identical alligator appendages composed of curly-cue noses and a row of teeth. This motif is inverted at the bottom attached to the sides of the legs. The man’s face reveals coffee-bean eyes, a large nose and slightly parted mouth. An interesting feature is relatively large deep naval and the two appliqued nipples positioned high on the chest. This figure probably represents a shaman dressed in ritual costume, the pendant itself most likely worn by someone of high rank.


In college, I was talking with a friend and wondered, what happened to jumpsuits? I came up with a really specific idea of a white one-piece Adidas shell suit I wanted with gold three-stripes down the side. I searched for it and couldn’t find one, but I did end up finding what’s essentially a ski suit, which may be my favorite item of clothing. People were like, “Why did you buy that? It’s so ridiculous,” but when it got cold, I was cruising around in my one-piece jumpsuit like, yeah, I’m the one laughing now.
