Christie’s sold me sculptures for $111K, but now says they’re fake: suit

A doctor who bought two East Indian sculptures from Christie’s for $111,324 claims that when he tried to resell them, the auction house refused — now citing authenticity issues. Dr. Sandran Waran, a pediatric neurologist from Morristown, NJ, is suing Christie’s in Manhattan federal court to recoup what he paid in 2005 and 2007 for a 12th-century blackstone stele of Vishnu and 11th-century sandstone figure of Uma.
