Field Museum sketch of artifacts from Benin City
Please remember that the Benin artefacts in the Field Museum are part of the 5000 or so Benin artefacts that the British stole/looted in their infamous punitive expedition of 1897. The Benin Royal Family has requested the return of some of these artefacts but the museum has not even bothered to respond to the official Royal request. So much respect for others
