Hello Everyone,

I found the print below today at the Flea Market.

Its an August Holland as you can see. Its a print and not the original, but it appears to be on heavy cardboard that has indentations to emulate brush strokes.

Does anyone konw what series this is from?

Does anyone know how old this is?

Does anyone know what the print is called?

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Here is an interesting past thread about the August Holland prints. According to the posts it's called Treasure Within.

Thank you DawnTiki....

I had read on Holland's site that these actually might be Mayan prints and not tiki at all.

I think it still looks tiki to me...but I haven't seen the other two yet.

Yet another thing to seek....

Aloha!

You are a very very lucky person. Not too many of that print floating around. Great find!

You could probably make quadruple your investment on ebay, if not more. I've never seen that print on ebay myself. "Pearl of Wisdom" shows up every now and again but not that one.

I got this off of a Bio page for Mr. Holland
Quote:
"The most popular of his prints was titled "The Pearl of Wisdom" printed by Goes Lithographing. It featured a Mayan god holding a bowl of light. It appeared in furniture stores across the country and the S&H and Gold Bond stamp catalogs which were popular at the time".



Not that I'm an expert on Maori or Mayan cultures but I think someone was confused when they wrote that text, because I'm seeing this print as Maori too.

Here's an August Holland question...does anyone have a copy of Pearl of Wisdom they would like to sell or trade for?

I would love to see what the Pearl of Wisdom looks like.

Does anyone have a picture to share?

I found this in TC's search, I think it's from one of Alnshely's posts.
