Ancient Aztec/ Mayan, Flying Machine Models, Metal
There is no shortage of descriptions of flying machines in ancient sources. If we try to extract the core of myths of different provenience and remove the embellishments, we discover to our surprise that flying in ancient times seems to be the rule, not the exception!
These are two metal models of Ancient Aztec Flying Machines. Each model is made out of metal and antique Gold in color. They both measure 2 inches in length x 1.5 inch in width. You get one of each model.  Objects come with certificate explaining history of real pieces. They come in a Burlap bag and ready for your adventure!
You can also get them with a hole in tail so you can hang on necklace or use as earings as a option.
Gold trinkets were found in an area covering Central America and coastal areas of South America, estimated to belong to a period between 500 and 800 CE, but since they are made from gold, accurate dating is impossible and based essentially on stratigraphy which may be deceptive. However, we can safely say that these gold objects are more than 1000 years old.
Whatever this object is supposed to be or represent, its remarkable resemblance to a modern aircraft or spacecraft is uncanny.
Archaeologists labelled these objects as zoomorphic, meaning, animal shaped objects. The question is, what animal do they represent? When we compare these with other objects from the same cultures depicting animals, a curious facet of the comparison would be obvious: the other objects are recognizable, rendered usually with a great accuracy and attention to realistic detail.
