I think the portrayal of this find is a little deceptive. The fact is this work was identified as an authentic, and very important, lost Diego Rivera - over 15 years ago.

It seems to me that this was an effort to make a big "find" and to perhaps set a record appraisal.

Really this are unique piece of art and would help us to preserve our art and culture. This will be more organized and cultured when the road show for the antiques will start. People those who love to keep old things will definitely love the show. L.Walberg welcome people to the show as it includes old sculpted events. This will provide us information regarding antiques.http://howpoint.com/How-to-spot-and-collect-antiques-of-the-future
