Mexico Recovers Religious Art Stolen in 2001

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities recovered two 18th-century sculptures that were stolen from a church 17 years ago, the Attorney General’s Office said Monday.

The wooden figures of Santa Ana and San Joaquin were taken in 2001 from a house of worship in the central state of Puebla, the AG Office said in a statement.

Investigators tracked down the items at an antique shop in the Mexico City neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec.

“In addition to the two items, authorities confiscated two wooden sculptures, apparently from the 19th century, with the characteristics of stolen sacred art, which are awaiting a determination by specialists of their place of origin,” the statement said.

Also seized was an 18th-century painting of St Francis of Assisi that was reported stolen in 2001 from a church in the state of Mexico.
