Why this is a
Masterpiece

They are one of the first colourful glass artefacts in the "two heads of an animal" form that were discovered.

History of the Object
Excavated in 1997-1998 in Giong Ca Vo site, Can Gio district, Ho Chi Minh City. Earrings in the shape of two heads of an animal reflect the sense of aesthetics of the time. The earrings are proof of the exchange between the Dong Nai people not only with South East Asia but also with Europe. This can be seen especially in the use of glass, colourful glass, and quartz.
