REAL or FAKE: >>Eye Idols of Tell Brake Page 3
Thanks to scarus for sending this one.
Here are another couple from the same seller.
We asked for more details.
Never had any reply!
The eye idols continue to come to the market. Here is the latest; note the new style head gear. A sort of trilobal crown hair do. Comes with a Prof Lambert certification.
Would be nice to find out where they all come from. All the paper and ink seems to be the same , therefore it would appear that somebody took a large number of items to the Prof at once. Or your guess is as good as mine.
I think these pages now have the largest collection of eye idol images anywhere on the net. It will be interesting to see if the supply dries up or continues with differing forms presenting to the market over the next year.
From the same seller.
Also offered with a authentification document by Professor Lambert. Neither piece is genuine in my opinion.
And here is one in lapis lazuli. Which I simply don't buy

Another awful fake to start the new year.

These two from the same seller.

These two are currently being offered by the same seller on eBay. Both have the Lambert handwritten docs. Looks like the same pen and paper as before. The tall pointy hat one does look like the fragmentory ones in the Louvre. The one with breasts......... He also has another with the top hat shaped head gear. It is different from the two I have already posted.
