General Information

All artifacts in the "Content" shown are unsalable, they serve only for orientation and decoration to purchase similar artifacts. All artifacts shown are taken from the private collection of Ernst-Dieter Henze.

More about Ernst-Dieter Henze:

For more than 25 years worldwide prehistoric and ethnological artefacts are collected and carried together by Ernst-Dieter Henze. During the meantime, the desire arose from this collecting passion, to make a hobby to a serious business.

Parts of the International collection with Indian Artifacts from Ernst-Dieter Henze are puplished with biography in the USA by Janie Jinks-Weidner, Westerville, Ohio, in "Who´s Who in Indian Relics, No.9". For more information, please have a look to the pages 160-169.

Private collection activity often isn't seen by the classic science with pleasure. But under consideration to the worldwide management of whole land development and cultivation by man and industrial expansion, connected with the dizzy expiration of cultures One should think of this, that it were among other things, also private collectors and are still today, which protect cultural possession from their definite destruction by their collecting activity connected with their financial resources and their not inconsiderable time input.

The history of the artefacts is checked as far as possible and documented in a data base correspondingly at the purchase by He-Artefakte.

The experiences made at this become the base for artifact type determination this one this one regulation, check and construction of expertises uses for stone artefacts.

The experiences made at this are the base for type determination, examination and authentication service for prehistoric stone artifacts.

For this purpose He-Artfakte has powerful microscopes for visual-, optical- and fluoreszens examination at disposal.

This, we think, is a very important service, because since more artifacts are copied better and better and this fakes will be sold earlier or later to collectors as prehistoric originals.
