On june 26th at the 'symposium' that rag hali magazine is sponsoringin London, England there will be a talk by ali riza tuna "the Kilim as an Image".
RK will surely not attend tunafish's talk but we'd like to know what he says.
So we will pay anyone who will video it, or tape record it and make some photos of the pictures he undoubtedly will show, 250 dollars and a copy of the plate volume of our Image Idol Symbol Anatolian kelim portfolio.
That's an at least a five hundred dollar offer.
We have spoken several times to mr tunafish and find his notions concerning Anatolian kelim to be amateurish, banal and pedestrian.
So why are we interested?
We enjoy critiquing and often ridiculing "researchers" like riza tuna who present nonsense fictional ideas as fact
We also know no one else will say a peep allowing these stooges and their half-baked notions to further muddy the waters we hope to clear.
Mr tunafish is a small fry in rugDUMB's Saragaso Sea and we are probably drawing more attention to him than he would get by ignoring him.
However, as insignificant as mr tunafish is compared to dennis the menace dodds, franses, Denny, thompson and others we have peer reviewed, he deserves to be countered with facts and reason.
It's a good offer, don't miss out if you are going.
BTW tunafish's talk will be in the afternoon session on june 26th after dr jon the con thompson's talk on 'color in carpets'.
