Guatemala Claim Against Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for Pre-Colombian Objects
This matter involves an ongoing claim by the Guatemalan government to a collection of Mayan Pre-Columbian artifacts that were donated to the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA), Boston in 1988 and are now part of a permanent exhibit. The collection (known as the “November Collection”) includes 138 pieces of Mayan jade, pottery and burial urns that Guatemalan officials assert were looted and illegally exported from Guatemala. . . .
