what howard carter missed in tut's tomb
1922 - the valley of the kings, upper egypt ... the british archeologist made a once-in-a-lifetime discovery after years of unsuccessful digging.
one day however a hidden tomb was found, a tomb that - from the size of it - was rather insignificant, a tomb not worthy to fit for a king.
once a hole opened in the wall separating our british diggers from the inner chamber howard carter took a quick glance through that hole exclaiming in awe : 'I see wonderful things.'
indeed he did ... the tomb was filled with unimaginable treasures, yet, one piece was overseen by carter ...
May your spirit live, may you spend millions of years, you, who love Thebes, sitting with your face to the north wind, your eyes beholding happiness (inscription on carter's tombstone)
MESSAGE from THE NEWBIE that I am in the Art World
As a newbie int the art jungle I had to learn quite a painful lesson indeed - two years ago I was contacted by
ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK
telling me that they were quite interested in representing me and my artwork.
THAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER ...
As a newbie I have never before heard about so-called VANITY GALLERIES, etc. and believed that - if you wish to exhibit here and there - then one would have to pay for that. Today I - as well as plenty of other unhappy artists which had put their faith in ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY - have learned that I had been fooled for almost 2 years and that my reputation as an artist must have been dangerously jeopardized because of my ignorance and naiveté, or - as many art critics see it - for wanting to boost my ego.
That has never been my attention at all ... unfortunuately, I didn't know it better at that time.
What had happen however is that not only did ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY NOT do anything of what they promised and got largely paid for
but worst of all - they never returned my two artworks in their "care"
# 280 THE TEAR
as well as
# 285 BREAKING FREE - the last journey of huguette
The two artworks that connected me to my late mother-in-law !!!
May this mishap be a warning to other inexperienced artists - never accept invitations from any VANITY GALLERY that are pure scam ...
Be careful, watch out, check out before making a decision involving your artwork or your money !!!
