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 bonafide
guarantees of authenticity. Keep in mind that a “Certificate of Authenticity”
is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low
prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts
offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
