Temporary Return Is No Small Victory: Mexico Negotiates over Moctezuma’s Headdress
January 20, 2011
The headdress attributed to the last Mexico ruler is on display in Austria. For three years, the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) have been negotiating for the return of the headdress before the Austrian Government.
ArtDaily called it “an unprecedented collaboration project between museums headed towards a better understanding of the headdress, which efforts have been intensified during the administration of President Felipe Calderon.”
