Boston museum returns Nigerian art
Some of the objects raised immediate concerns, including three terracotta pieces from Nigeria’s Nok culture, a type of work listed by the International Council of Museums as being at high risk of having been stolen.
Last year, Reed wrote to Nigeria’s National Commission for Museums and Monuments to ask if the commission had approved the export of the eight flagged pieces. The commission replied that it had not done so, and the lone export document for one of the pieces was found to have been forged, said Reed.
