Why this is a
Masterpiece

During pre-Hispanic times, foreign merchants traded semi-precious stones in exchange for gold manufactured in Surigao province in the southern Philippines. This 22-carat bracelet, inlaid with garnet and turquoise, is an excellent specimen and bears witness to the trade networks that plied Island Southeast Asia.

History of the Object
Since its acquisition, this object was a feature of the museum’s permanent diorama display till 2000, when the museum's collection had to be moved to a temporary location in preparation for the new museum building. It was also featured in Treasures at Ayala Museum (2002).
