The ancient Incan empire of Peru will be revived at an Australian-first exhibition in Canberra.

More than 200 objects from the “pre-Hispanic cultures of Peru” will be displayed at National Gallery of Australia, starting in December.

There will be a wide range artifacts traversing Inca culture, including stone calendars, gold armour, jewellery, embroidered cloths and art fashioned from silver, turquoise and, of course, gold.

The display has been sourced from private museums and Peru’s National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History has lent some of its “greatest treasures” to the ACT gallery.

The exhibition is due to run until April 2014. Tickets are on sale via Ticketek.
