Tribal Art - More on the question of authenticity

The Tribal Beat reports on the San Francisco Tribal & Textile Show recently held at Fort Mason.

His take on the state of the market is interesting. Realistic, if a little depressing. But I am convinced that the market for tribal art will come blazing back.

He also writes about the motives of "experts" called in to vet objects proposed for inclusion in the show. It partially agrees with my feelings about asking other dealers for opinions. I continue to feel it is a good precaution. Yet, as the Tribal Beat suggests. Everything is not fair and always in the buyer's (or the business's) best interest.
