He has changed his  ID on eBay again;

Now is : ancient-arts-gallery

And gives this info now

Madinat kharasan silvers and nov l l c
King faisal street
Al majaz, souq al markazi shop 48
61156 Sharjah
United Arab Emirates

searching on this leads to:

Madinat Kharasan Jewellers & Novelties
1 Floor, Shop 48,Central Souk, 3 , King Faisal Street,   Al Majaz , Sharjah

Yes, good description of his fakes: "novelties"



Mr Mir, our fiendly eBay frauster whose customers think is very nice and helpful, has quite a number of quite badly made fake cylnder seals. Here are just three . Many more there.

Everything has to be genuine because his web site features a You Tube video of his recent grave robbing trip to Iraq. Shows him hightailing it over the border with Nebuchadnezzar's stuff, hot lead flying from AK-47's the whole while. What a guy to put himself in personal danger to offer the antiquities world such wonderful stuff, and at bargain basement prices! No, I'm not serious.

This bad seller manages to sell so called cunieform tablets such as most definitely never existed in ancient times.
Look at these ridiculous things!
The buyers on eBay who fall for such as these simply don't know anything at all about such artefcts.

P.T. Barnum here wouldn't try swindling someone familiar with this silliness. Obviously targeting the other 7.887 billion on Earth.

I've seen these on ebay under "ancient terracotta". Didn't realize they carry the vaunted Mujtaba designer label. Does he autograph his genuine ancient artifacts? 


Here is another  fake thing from Mr Mir which is badly copied from a well known original in the British Museum

Alabaster bas-relief showing Assyrian soldiers holding the decapitated heads of their defeated enemy before Assyrian musicians. Neo-Assyrian Period, 865-860 BCE. Detail of Panel 6 (top), Room B, the North-Palace Palace, Nimrud, modern-day Iraq. (The British Museum, London)



Wonder where the birdie came from?
Search on google images and hey presto, this pair appear side by side! :o)

Happy, satisfied cudstomers continue to spend a lot of money on Mr Mir's badly made fakes.
(Many of his fakes are however quite well made)

Successful crooks do their homework before spitting silliness out for sale. Wait until he gets his crooked mitts on a decent 3D printer with AI capabilities.
