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.

Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
