Bought this off the bay. Owner claims a story about Colorado where this was with buckets of insulators and an auction. He should have credibility due to his ex NIA President status but seems to have drifted to the dark side. This piece had blackness in the center that may not show in the pics, it was sent back. I expect to see it for sale in the future. Beware, it is not real in my opinion despite the hype and the great price. He didn't want it back when the cost was only $6xx.00. If it were real I'd expect it to sell for $6000+. Logic dictates fraud!
