Ancient Wooden Carvings Excavated at Chan Chan in Peru.

Four wooden carvings were found at the Chan Chan site, three of them are carvings of women. The male carving had its face covered in white clay as a mask. A scepter, metal vessels, textiles and shells were also found in the tomb like area. There was a body next to the carvings they have not yet studied. The carvings would have been placed there circa 1400 CE.
