Just after we made our post about the smuggled Gilgamesh Dream Tablet that Hobby Lobby purchased from Christie’s for over $1.6M, another article appeared. This one, in the Daily Beast, is about the lawsuit Hobby Lobby has now brought against Christie’s — they want their money back, plus interest, and attorney fees.
This article is worth reading, shedding a little light on what goes on in the antiquities market. It also seems that Christie’s sold Hobby Lobby other illegal items in the past. That web is getting a lot more tangled!
