Is Saudi Prince About To Buy $36M Chinese Ming Dynasty Statuettes

After our first publication about these rare $36 Million Chinese Ming Dynasty statuettes, The World Art News received further questions regarding their provenance, authenticity, valuation, and who may be the potential buyer of these unique artifacts.

Professor Tamoikin was surprisingly candid with us and gave stunning answers to all our questions. If you ever wandered how the super-rich do business, negotiate, and operate in the art market, this interview is a Must-Read!

Could two Chinese Ming Dynasty statuettes be worth more than $36 Million

The Tamoikin Art Fund (TAF) is clearly looking to test this theory, because recently it unveiled two ancient Chinese statuettes that have been attributed to the Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from 1368 to 1644.
