Mummified Peruvian child arm. This amazing piece is from the collection of an archaeologist from Peru. Approximately 400-500 years old. Many children were sacrificed in the Inca culture, no way to say if this is one. In amazing preserved condition, from about a 14 or 15 year old child based on relative size.
