GALLERY OF ANCIENT HISTORY
THE PIECES SHOWN IN THIS GALLERY QUALIFY UNDER THE DEFINITION OF ANTIQUITY

Antiquity - (Latin antīquitās - ancient)
A collectable item desirable because of its beauty, rarity, or personal emotional connection,
and/or other unique features. It is sometime referred to as that
which has survived "the ravages of time
".

Some of the elements such as the Meso Lapis dating from 2900 BC can be found on Wikipedia. Some of them have no precise date - such as the WHITE JADE BELT - but have been reviewed by Professors of antiquity from the country of origin and dates as near as possible have been set. While the authenticity of the pieces has been established by renowned entities such as the American Gemological Association, The artist does not guarantee the age of any piece.The value of some of the pieces has been set on the basis of intrinsic value - such as in the case of white jade which can fetch $3000 an ounce at market. The real value of the pieces is most likely somewhere between the asking price and priceless.

The work is considered Museum quality and  "Investment Art"
