“The Netherlands' national museum for world cultures NMVW will generously return art taken through colonial theft to their countries of origin. The museum will not wait for claims, but is actively searching its own collections for objects that qualify for restitution, Trouw and NRC report."
(…) An example of objects that may be returned are the so-called Benin bronzes, a collection of several thousand bronze and brass statutes taken from present-day Nigeria by the British at the end of the 19th century. 139 of these statues are in the Netherlands.”
