|Goddess from Schinoussa Archive|
Source: Dr Christos Tsirogiannis
1991 is some distance in time from the benchmark date of 1970 provided by the UNESCO Convention.
The goddess appears to be the same as the one identified by Dr Christos Tsirogiannis in the Schinoussa Archive. This suggests that the goddess, at some point, passed through the hands of Robin Symes.
Why is the collecting history for the goddess that appears in the sale catalogue incomplete? Had the due diligence process failed to make the apparent link with Symes? How had the object's history between 1970 and 1991 been explained?
