“The objects and artifacts come from Argentina, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, United States, Holland, United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland, where they were returned voluntarily or after sustaining long litigation in the courts”, said El Comercio.
One of the most outstanding pieces that were recovered is a loom of the Moche civilization, which was returned by the Ethnographic Museum of Leiden in Holland. Also, a religious painting called “The creation of Eva”, which was stolen in 1991 from a church in the central region of Junín.
Recently, on September 6, a Sicán Mask was recovered in Peru after a 19-year judicial process that began in 1999 when the Interpol Office in Wiesbaden, Germany seized it. Nevertheless, this is just one of the many objects that have been stolen over time by illegal traffickers.
