I WENT ONCE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND SAW A LOT OF VERY GOOD MUSEUM GRADE WEAPONS AND ART AND HAD A FINE TIME. I LIKE SANTA FE AND USED TO GO OVER IN THE WINTER TO SKI AND HANG AROUND TOWN.
THE SHOW IS A GOOD ONE AND WORTH A VISIT BUT THE PRICES ARE DEFINITELY ETHINOGRAPHIC ART AS IN CHRISTIES,AND SOUTHBYS NOT SWORD COLLECTOR PRICES. I CAN LEARN BUT MY TASTE IS TOO GOOD FOR MY POCKETBOOK SO I USUALLY JUST WEAR A BIB AND GO AROUND DROOLING THERE ARE ALSO SOME GOOD RESTURANTS, SIGHTSEEING AND GALLERIES.

THE SHOW WAS GREAT AS USUAL I MANAGED TO FIND 3 SEPARATE SHOWS AND A LARGE FLEA MARKET. I FOUND 3 ITEMS AT THE FLEA MARKET AT A GOOD PRICE AND TWO AT THE LOWEST PRICED ETHINOGRAPHIC SHOW. THERE WERE SOME EXCELLENT EXAMPLES OF SOUTH PACIFIC WAR CLUBS (I SAW 3 WHICH WERE THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THEIR TYPES I HAVE SEEN THEY WERE ALL ALREADY SOLD TO A DEALER IN FRANCE). THERE WERE EXCELLENT EXAMPLES OF AMERICAN INDIAN WAR CLUBS, KNIVES, BOWS,ECT.
I SAW ONE KRIS,ONE AXE AND ONE NICE MONSTERHEAD BOLO HANDLE SO PHILIPPINE AND MORO ITEMS WERE NOT VERY WELL REPRESENTED. I TOOK SOME PICTURES OF THE ONE DEALERS ITEMS THAT HAD SOME PHILIPPINE ,DAYAK AND OTHER ITEMS, THE BONTOC AXE WAS THE BEST I HAVE SEEN. THERE WERE NOT A LOT OF EDGED WEAPONS THERE THIS YEAR, THE FLEA MARKET HAD MORE THAN ALL THREE SHOWS PUT TOGETHER BUT THEY WERE MOSTLY AFRICAN VERY POOR QUALITY ITEMS. I SENT THE PICTURES OFF TO RICK FOR HIM TO WORK ON AS I CAN'T GET MY SOFTWARE TO CROP OR LIGHTEN OR ANYTHING TO WORK. I HAD PLANNED TO TAKE A FEW MORE PICTURES BUT MY BATTERY GOT WEAK.

I WILL TRY AND TAKE SOME PICTURES OF THE ITEMS I BOUGHT SOON AND POST THEM AND WILL MAKE COMMENTS ON THE PICTURES RICK POSTS. ALL IN ALL A VERY WORTHWHILE TRIP AND SANTA FE IS STILL A GREAT TOWN TO VISIT.

* I think it was the flourescent lighting Barry.

Question

Barry , can you send me larger raw files; say 1 meg per picture ?
The ones I recieved were probably automatically reduced when you emailed them.
They are a bit on the small side .

ARRRRGH!! I HAVE GOT TO GET A BETTER CAMERA AND SOFTWARE THE ADOBE AUTO FIX DIDN'T WORK VERY WELL AND I GUESS I ENLARGED IT TOO MUCH. OH WELL I DID THE BEST I COULD.
IN THE BOOTH PICTURE THERE ARE 3 DAYAK MANDAU, A BATAK SWORD, A DAGGER FROM INDONESIA WITH THE CURRELD HANDLE, A BONTOK AXE TWO DAYAK SHIELDS, A PHILIPPINE SHIELD AND A OCEANIC SHIELD IN THE MIDDLE. THE DEALER HAS SOME TRULY EXCEPTIONAL MANDAU IN HIS COLLECTION BUT DIDN'T BRING VERY MANY THIS YEAR BUT WHAT HE DID BRING WAS EXCELLENT. HE HAD SOME OTHER ETHINOGRAPHIC ART AS WELL AS THE SWORDS.
THE OTHER PICTURES ARE OF A NORTH WEST COAST INDIAN KNIFE IT HAS A COPPER HANDLE REFERRED TO AS A DOGFISH , SHOWN IS THE TOP OF THE HEAD THE BOTTOM HAS THE CRESENT SHARK MOUTH. THIS DEALER HAD TWO MORE EXCELLENT N.W. COAST KNIVES BUT THE CAMERA CHOSE TO QUIT AT THAT POINT.
