Topic: Beautiful but lacks soul 4:sotheby 33 million

Rumor has it the Islamic Museum in Doha, Qatar purchased the sickle-leaf carpet.

But no rumormongering about who peter pap was representing.

One thing is for sure -- he was not representing himself.

RK Replies:

How's things in Nashua? Is the Best Western nice? Do you have a nice view from your room?

Listen, dude, if anything "lacks the soul"(sic) it's you. And it's losing, not "loosing", Hemingway.

Here's the story: the sickle-leaf rug is as we said surface-beautiful.

But when it is studied with a connoisseur's eye it fails to reach the high level other carpets of its type achieve.

And then, as far as RK is concerned, all those cutesy Safavid rugs with swirling masses of flowers and trees are easy for the uninitiated to marvel at, but frankly they don't move us.

So next time you want to start accusing RK of being what a dickhead like you proved yourself to be -- ass wipe -- get your facts straight and by all means use a spell checker.

PS: Enjoy the Best Western Historic and good luck at the antique show tomorrow. Hope you find a Hamadan you'll really like.


You are truly an ass-wipe. Beautiful and lack the soul? You are really loosing it now.

We have now learned the rumor is true, well at least according to our close to the scene sources, and the Clark/Corcoran sickle-leaf carpet was purchased by the Doha Museum authority.

So, sometime soon we are sure the Doha Islamic Museum will have to reveal their new acquisition, and hopefully put it on view.

As for mr pap and his role in the sale?

RK is a good sleuth and we are going to continue to plumb the back alleys to see if we can turn up just exactly who put the paddle in pap's hands and pulled his string at the sale.
