AN IMPORTANT PERUVIAN SILVER PLAQUE WITH HAMMERED DECORATION "THE WEDDING OF MARTIN DE LOLLORA AND BEATRIS KOYA"

Peru, late 16th/early 17th century

Depicting the famous couple surrounded by a feline, dog, monkey, parrot, flowers, child and a servant holding an umbrella, the plaque trapeze-shaped. 


Note:
Martin de Lollora and Beatris Koya were assumed to be the first married couple in Peru between two persons each of them from different royal lineage, one of the Conqueror and the other of the Conquered. The couple can be identified by a set of very distinguishable iconography in art history of South America.
