    Collectors now buy and sell photographs of former sideshow "freaks" — but who were these people?

    Hour 3 | Original Air Date: January 23, 2006 (#1003)

    ARTICLE: Pietra Dura: "Rock Art"

    This stunning work of stone inlay is so intricate, at first the expert mistook it for a painting. More on the history of this impressive technique.
