03 August 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Police Department of Ilam province succeeded in confiscating five unique bronze goat-like shape statues dating back to the first millennium BCE from an antique smuggler.

 

Announcing this news, Mohammad Naserifar, director of the preservation department of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department of Ilam province told CHN that these artifacts were surrendered to this Department after they were confiscated by the police forces.

He also declared that Ilam’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department is following up with the case as it filed a lawsuit against the smuggler. “We are waiting for the court’s ruling,” said Naserifar to CHN.

Restorations are currently underway on these statues and they are expected to be transferred to the anthropology museum of Ilam later to be displayed for public viewing.
