His hunger for adventure and South American gold killed him when his unit was ambushed by natives while scouting on the Peruvian mountains.
This Spanish conquistador was hastily buried in that remote place by his comrades with two gold doubloons on his eyes as a final reward and to pay his passage to the afterlife, an old practice known as the Charon's Obol.
A truly unique display object rich in historical lore and of macabre significance, a great conversation starter piece, impossible to find anywhere else.
