Miguel Mujica Gallo was born on March 27, 1910. Founder and creator of the Miguel Mujica Gallo Foundation. From an early age he began his life as a collector. His fondness for hunting introduced him to the acquisition of ancient weapons. When he saw a pre-Columbian Tumi (ceremonial knife), emblem of our collection, he was fascinated with it, so it was that with this piece along with 36 others he began his interest and admiration for the pre-Columbian archaeological world. His collections of pre-Columbian weapons and Peruvian pieces have been the 'Oro del Perú' and 'Armas del Mundo' museums since its headquarters in Monterrico. Miguel Mujica Gallo passed away on August 11, 2001.
