Thank you for your welcoming words.
I wish to say a few words about myself so that it is easier to discuss things in future.
My name is Margalit. I live in Jerusalem and am nearly 58 years old. I am an anthropologist by training and used to be an assistant curator at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. My specialty was Akkan gold-weights as a depository of a value system in that they refer to proverbs which in turn encapsulate ethical and other teachings and wisdom. I also wrote a thesis on Malangan (which I understand is now spelled differently?).
I am a modest collector, having started by buying remnants of an old and distinguished collection and adding to it within my limited means.
I have uploaded a few items at random. they basically are the images I found easily in my computer last night. They are a part of my rather eclectic collection which I hope to refine over the years by selling off things that do not belong and picking up others I think do. Not an easy task as it turns out.
Looking forward to positive, polite and well meaning discussion. Eager to get started. Best regards, Margalit
