YOU ARE HERE:>>REAL or Fake , fake Eye idols section 2, page 3


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!

Same seller, different factory outlet?


And yet more !!! >>>>
