National Archives exhibits around 100 handcrafted pieces recovered from abroad

At least 100 Angolan handcrafted pieces and artefacts recovered outside the country are on display from this Monday, in Luanda, as part of National Culture Day.


The pieces, recovered abroad, where they were found "illegally", will be on display until January 17th at the National Archives of Angola, in Luanda.

The Minister of Culture and Tourism, Filipe Zau, who visited the exhibition, as part of the National Culture Day celebrations, which took place this Monday, highlighted the importance of the recovered artefacts.

"They represent just over 100 pieces, which, with the help of our diplomatic missions, returned to our country. They left illegally, they went to places where they shouldn't have been and today we are making every effort to recover these pieces", he said Filipe Zau.

According to the governor, the aforementioned artisanal pieces were recovered within the scope of UNESCO recommendations, which advises former colonial potentials to return the cultural heritage of the former colonies.

Filipe Zau also made it known, without specifying, that Angola still has several other pieces abroad and that the country is developing cultural diplomacy for their recovery, "because they should be part" of the country's museum collection, "for studies and research".
