Republic of Turkey – Medieval Religious Artifact Repatriation

Representation of the Republic of Turkey in its recovery of an intricately carved walnut panel from the Sultan's prayer gallery of the Great Mosque in Divrigi, Turkey, built in the 13th Century. We worked with the United States Government, which had sued a London art dealer, to secure the return of this priceless stolen antiquity. We also worked with Scotland Yard to achieve the return of four other panels from the Great Mosque, a medieval monument on UNESCO's World Heritage List of cultural sites recognize to be of "outstanding value."
