Here is a very unusual type.

The type of chest design is well documented.

Mallowan type 2.


But the head has been misunderstood by the faker.

(Though I do know of one single attested example with very pronounced tall 'ears'.)

It's this type. With a 'crown' not ears!

The fake was possibly copied from this one or one sold through Christie's several years ago.


And the eyes!

The eyes were never cut with a tubular drill.


These below, sold by same seller on eBay, all clearly from the same fake maker.


More and more..........

They keep coming!
