As a matter of principle, it's preferable that cultural artifacts be displayed in the place from which they come. International laws concerning the preservation of such cultural treasures stipulate as much. This particular artifact was turned over to German authorities, with the necessary permits, during the time of the Ottoman Empire. We are not asking for the return of such artifacts.
However, we do want to work, through negotiations and simple persuasion, to bring back items that left Turkey without permits and therefore illegally.

We most certainly believe in win-win solutions when it comes to cooperating over cultural artifacts. Still, on the issue of restitution, we expect the other party to fulfill its obligations. In the Ottoman Empire, the export of artifacts was forbidden by law from to Only the sultan was allowed to circumvent this law.
The five artifacts I've named, which are now in Berlin, were without a doubt exported from Turkey illegally, which is why we are now asking for their return. The relevant documentation is not always still available. And Berlin is quite certain that the prayer niche from Konya arrived on German soil legally. A prayer niche is not just an archaeological object to be admired. Condition: Neu. More information about this seller Contact this seller 4.

Interlaced are scenes from the present treasure hunt in the Valley of the Kings, both official and by grave robbers supplying the international smuggle trade. The great pyramid of pharaoh Cheops at Gizeh, arguably the most perpetual human creation, certainly served the purpose of enabling the king eternal life among the stars, but how exactly?
