AXA Art is offering a reward in connection with the theft of an Assyrian low relief and a marble head dating from the Roman Empire, both rare and valuable, stolen from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts last fall.
AXA Art is offering a substantial reward, subject to specific conditions, for information leading to the safe recovery of the items, and additional rewards are also offered for anyone able to identify either of the two individuals caught on closed circuit television. The missing objects are registered with the appropriate authorities.
Details of the thefts have been under wraps while a police investigation has taken place.
Clare Dewey, AXA Art’s claims manager and one of the company’s in-house art experts, said, “While we are naturally concerned about the financial loss, we are equally impacted by the significant cultural loss of these precious artifacts. We are working closely with the authorities to recover these rare artifacts and apprehend the perpetrators.”
AXA Art joins the museum and international authorities in appealing to the public for help. Anyone with credible information leading to the whereabouts and safe recovery of these missing rare artifacts is asked to contact the police, Surete du Quebec, 1701, rue Parthenais, Montreal, Quebec, Crime Ref: 20-11108-020, at 800-659-4264; or the loss adjuster, Mark Dalrymple, Tyler & Co., 10 Lloyds Avenue, London, at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 20 7377 0282.
