Excerpt from a letter by Professor Pierre du Bourguet
dated 21, August 1986

"There can be no doubt whatsoever about my deep conviction that the objects in your collection are authentic Amarna sculptures, even though they may be of different artistic value, the style seems to me to be typical from the Amarna period and cannot be the work of a forger. I am not the least surprised to see my findings totally validated by the impressive body of chemical and geological tests you submitted to me."
