The human face on this gold and silver tumi is typically Chimu, as is the headdress which has two small bird pendants.
In Chimu times the dead were placed in a seated, flexed position and wrapped with multiple layers of cloth. In burials of important people, masks, such as this specimen fashioned from sheet gold, were then positioned over the face area of the mummy bundle.
