It's a common enough mistake. I get the feeling that when people find an object that looks neither Oriental nor African, they often plump for South American of some type. No doubt there are some great Tiki bargains to be had in the Aztec section of eBay!

I believe you can see a breif glimpse of the BOL print in the movie "Prey For Rock N Roll".

Ah, bless the man who invented the 'search' button!

Okay...does anyone remember how much these Pearl prints went for on Ebay?

I recently found one at an antique store and passed on it twice with the $45 ticket on it. And, to me, it was not in the best shape, but a nice print, none the less.

I'm curious if anyone remembers how much some of these had gone for in auctions.

Thanks!

I got my Pearl of Wisdom on ebay for about 75.00 a year ago and it is in excellent shape. I'm always keeping an eye out for the Treasure Within, but haven't seen one on ebay at least in the last year.
Cheers, K

I have this as a large poster...I believe
the title is "The Power Within"..but I am
not positive. The poster does not have
the similated brush strokes like pearl of
Wisdom. In fact I have a spare poster
of "The Power Within" that I would swap if
anyone has a copy of his "drums" print/
poster. August Holland is also famous
for maritime and coastal paintings...and
also used a pseudonym for some arabian
nights paintings...very cool stuff.

75 - $45.00 is a decent enough deal on "Pearl of Wisdom." I bought mine on Ebay and with shipping and all it came to $90.00. The auction I posted the link for back in '04 ended up selling for nearly $200!

Congatiki, what was the pseudonym August Holland used for the Arabian Nights paintings? Or the names of the paintings, do you know? I would love to see them.

He used the name Sasha Kamouran for a print
called "Arabian Nights." It is a stilllife
with "a magic lamp...sword...some jemstones and a candleholder" in the foreground...with
a desert scene (with a camel train) in the
background. It was confirmed to me by his
wife that he did use this pseudonym for
several paintings...He also has one that
shows an oriental fan dancer...and has the
general look of "Pearl of Wisdom"...blue
background with the dancer holding red
fans..very nice.

Johntiki, thanks bro. I made an offer earlier this week but havent heard back from the vendor yet.
I may just go ahead and pay the $45 now that I have some advice.

The piece I'm looking at has one small nick in the middle...like something got rubbed and dropped against it. Still, it's small and pretty un-noticable.

Thanks again! I appreciate the reply and advice. With any luck, it'll still be there tomorrow!
