    Thanks Alan, I was wondering when this image will reappear.

    In 2007, I posted this announcement on Daheshville.

    The short of it is that Dr. Dik (which is pronounced "deek" and which in Arabic means ... ... ahem... "Rooster") contacted years prior to that, in an attempt to sell us the photograph. After that, this person began offering it on eBay. And at one point, in order to jack-up the price of the photograph (at that point, it was over $400), he even copied and pasted the whole content of the article by James Panero, which is called "What is Strange about the Dahesh Museum."

    Now, I don't know if he was able to sell it or not.

    But it's good to see it up again, and in a Facebook group (no less) called "Me and Dr. Dahesh." (Note to those who don't know me that well: that was sarcasm...)
