In his early career, Billy was described as the treasure-hunting Indiana Jones with a taste for the bizarre.  His collection included a dozen shrunken heads.  He was a reality TV star of History Channel’s Treasure Trader show.  Billy Jamieson became prominent after purchasing the entire content of the NIAGARA FALL MUSEUM, housing Canada’s oldest ethnographic and natural history collection of seven hundred thousand objects, including this fine old Eastern Woodland Mask.
