RK has proven a number of facts about dennis dodds:
1. dodds is a liar
2. dodds is a cheat
3. dodds is a rug know-little
4. dodds is not a collector
5. dodds's credentials as a rug-scholar are tenuous and over-rated
6. dodds has used the few exhibitions he has organized in public Museums in Pennsylvania to peddle rugs from his own inventory placed there as 'exhibits' --this is highly improper
7. dodds is a consistent over-dater of the rugs he peddles on the internet, in his public advertisements and presumably in private dealings with 'collectors'
8. dodds knows of RK's criticisms, critiques and rebuttals, as well as our accusations about his knowledge and lack of personal and profession honesty and he has never once defended himself, which in anyone's mind can only mean dodds knows he is guilty as charged and has no defense
Today, on a public website, dodds listed the following Mudjur prayer rug for sale
Its not a bad example, in fact it is, compared to many, it's a better one, HOWEVER, it is not 18th century as dodds ridiculously claims
To call it early 19th century would be sufficient but not for a serial over-dater and cheat like dennis dodds
Think about it -- dodds is a rugDUMB reprobate, his actions in the LACMA 'bellini" fiasco and rip-off are surely unbecoming to say the least and criminal in RK's opinion, yet dodds continues on his merry cheating way because no one in rugDUMB is brave or honest enough to call him out for his transgressions, lies, and thievery.
No one except RK
Wake up people and at least move to remove dodds from his icoc presidency, what a joke, as well as join with RK to put LACMA on notice that dodds's thievery in l'affaire "bellini" is something you are concerned and upset about.
How many more times will you all allow dodds to get away with his machinations and highly questionable actions???
