Shaaban Abdel-Gawad, the Supervisor General of Antiquities Restitution Department, said that the relief was stolen from an illegal excavation then smuggled out of the country.

 

It was then put on show at an auction hall in New York and then tracked by the Antiquities Repatriation Department at the Ministry of Antiquities through the internet.

 



The relief is engraved with a scene depicting a man named  Padi-Sena beside the two deities Horus and Hathor.

 

The department succeeded to submit to the concerned authority in New York all legal documents that prove Egypt’s ownership of the relief, as well as evidence export documents were forged.

 

The relief was then handed over to the Egyptian consulate.
