-- tell us but it Christie's is going to be 150.
To 250000 -- although I do expect it will sell for considerably more Christians has been on a -- for sure.
The caps played a real important role an ancient Egypt and they really had great significance absolutely they were sacred to regardless best bet and it's interesting that you keep would go to her sanctuaries.
And then he would dedicate a cat usually -- money would be.
Deposited in this goddesses sanctuary sometimes and would -- sometimes in -- one like this.
Is that what this was or most likely more large enough but it certainly -- -- we -- fit in there.
The price things like something that whole -- -- that this would be worth even more.
Well from your lips to -- god I thought here.
It's it's like this this it's supply and demand like any -- market and there's enough of these things out there to keep him from being hugely valuable but this is a particularly good one and I do expect I mean the conditions absolutely phenomenal and it's it's a beautiful absolutely beautiful piece.
You know listen you guys just had this big modern art -- it's an all kinds of records.
The antiquities stuff just seems as it did to be is that -- -- the -- revived interest in this in this stuff that you use them.

Like it was maybe that that thumbnail for the big Easter Island things you know the significance of it.
We don't what we do know is that these figures were either placed hole into burials or.
Broken in sanctuaries that's about all we know we also know.
That they were painted -- -- and that it would have been.
Read for the hair and for the eyes and so forth I you know I got to tell you Monica I think they're absolutely phenomenal both of them.
Fascinated by antiquities like that things that are this old and the fact that they've survived this amount of time in such extraordinary condition.
That that's true and psychotic is particularly popular because of the minimalist approach to humor.
Depiction of the human and artist like Picasso and run -- -- we're much influenced by by ancient art.
