Foundation brings back items indigenous to Mexico | Life/Entertainment

Small ancient sculptures gathering dust in storage boxes in Albuquerque are returning home to Mexico, where they are intertwined with the identity of indigenous communities.

The Albuquerque Museum Foundation celebrated the return of a dozen sculptures at a ceremony Wednesday. The local Mexican consulate received Olmec greenstone sculptures, a figure from the city of Zacatecas, bowls buried with graves, and other clay figurines dating back thousands of years.
