The results are in!


I have been interested to see the results of our online quiz. I think the main problem with it was the software we had to used from MyStudio, which allowed only one view, and, more importantly, didn’t permit closeups. One user commented about the lack of back views with reference to the Standing Woman, where I had mentioned the lack of details of hair and dress on the back. But in fact she is the only piece in the quiz that has any kind of a back view, which is yet another clue that she is a forgery (see slides 10 & 11 below)—they were not making free-standing statues in Egypt at that time. All the other pieces are rough and unfinished on the backs and also, in many cases, on the sides, because they were intended to be set into walls.  The slideshow below will display the rest of my thoughts alongside the objects.
