This seller has been a conscientious collector and dedicated scholar of New World antiquities for over a half-century. He has complied with UNESCO, federal/local legislation and never consciously acquired, traded in or sold illicitly recovered antiquities. CAVEAT EMPTOR: The prospective buyer is advised to acquire New World antiquities ONLY from recognized Pre-Columbian Art specialists and pay a legitimate price for authentic antiquities with legal provenance and bona-fide guarantees of authenticity; a “Certificate of Authenticity” is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or misattributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
