Cf. Emmerich (1965: fig. 84)

"Along the coast and flood plains of northern Columbia, and in the wide river valleys which rise from here into the cordilleras, three distinct local cultures came into being. All three reflect the flavor and craftsmanship of Quimbaya gold work, but each developed its distinct forms of expression. Just as in the Quimbaya culture, their finest achievements by far are found in the art of their goldsmiths."(Emmerich, 1965: p 75)
