Rothschild family treasures to be sold in historic auction worth millions (nypost.com)

This October, Christie’s in New York will sell hundreds of curated pieces from the decadent banking dynasty’s trove in a series of auctions. 

Why are they selling their art? There is definitely more that meets the eye. Until we are actually able to see a manifest of the art it’s best to assume that this is no normal auction.  

A number of years ago, I was trying to get an internship into the Sackler-Freer art gallery in Washington DC.  I was working with a congressman who had connections with the Japanese art section department who were looking for an art historian. Unfortunately, that job fell through, the funding for my job was cut, but before the deal was chopped, the congressman told me a story about how the director of the Sackler-Freer was privately having donors and collectors buy things from the art archive secretly. They had lost an enormous amount of Southeast Asian art, some priceless headpieces and ceramics.  It would have been my job to track down what was lost. I was told that the favor of buying this art illegally was in return, the donors would commit to donations to the museum and continue to have access to the archived art.  ( Possibly buying more illegally?)

Point of this story is, that there’s more to this.  Why would you sell large lots like this?  Never before has the Rothschild family done this.  Priceless treasures all up for auction.  It could be a way to signal economic problems for the United States, advertising pay for play, or a closing of a deal.  And the truth is, recently art has been used in ways to signal illegal activity.  Auction houses are notorious middle men and many times the collections themselves hold great hints and symbolism of the true nature of the lot.  

What do you think?

I get what you’re saying. But this is also performance art, a staged melodrama. They are signaling and we have to decode the message they are sending globally

They will purchase the items themselves using offshore shell corporations at bidding. The purpose of art sales is to produce clean liquidity for on shore use in the US.

Christy’s is the largest private facilitator of illicit money laundering in the world.

That’s an excellent point. Yes, it’s very likely they will continue to keep their art. A tax free way of laundering or transfering funds. Especially since Christie’s has been keeping high bidders anonymous.

The media reports are just paid for junk, designed to give a sufficient aire of legitimacy to the auction. In this case, it’s not about signalling the public, nor clout, it’s quite simply money laundering untaxed banking fortunes amassed through shady international arms deals and narco trafficking.

Perhaps a specific coded signal exists other than noted here. On the surface of practicality; keeping their name and stuff valid in the public eye while the Western civilization still has 2.5 table legs. When one table leg is left, these traditional and historic items will have far less significance. Plus the Rothschilds need to make room for new stuff more fitting to their current tastes.

Likely the primary reason is the doing away with history and tradition all together as that is the movement they sponsor. Rothscild’s certainly have no more valid reason to desire these items. They are not attempting to raise money.

The Disney’s Epcot has plenty of reminders that history and tradition will have no place in the future. One giant panoramic mural is a forest with all the old growth cut off as stumps and all new growth sprouting up. This is a monolithic statement no one cared to pay attention or notice to the obvious forecasts everywhere.
Obviously getting the old gone while it still has a semblance of value.iThe fantasicakl green, global BS movement and the Fifteen-Minute so called Smart Cities.

The agenda is alive and well, just wiped out the historical and deeply traditional town of Lahaina by melting hundreds of aluminum wheels and melting all the vehicle glass and a few hundred people with the help of some microwave energy. So the old will go by force and the new as a solution to the problems they caused. Which of course will be a deeper problem.
