CAVEAT EMPTOR: These figures are among the most frequently reproduced statues. The prospective buyer is therefore strongly 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 in this arcane field. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately neither true bargains nor prudent investments.
