“Central American countries are up in arms once more over the sale of pre-hispanic objects in Paris, which they say is “encouraging looting and trafficking of their cultural heritage". Their anger was triggered by an auction of pre-Columbian artefacts owned by the French collectors Manichak and Jean Aurance held at Alexandre Millon at Drouot yesterday, 18 September.”
