1. Its been technically 500 years not a thousand, but yes

  2. The codex wasn't made 500 years ago, I put the date in the title.

  3. So who stole the other 3 and where are they? Because they belong in the Americas.

  4. One is in Paris, one is in Madrid and the most complete is in Dresden and was heavily damaged in WW2.

  5. Could you link a picture of the original one?

  6. Yeah of course, it's just that the replica in OP's post looks brand new while the original doesn't.

  7. It’s a shame that most of them have been stolen from the museum over the years

  8. Source? Cause many of them has gone into multiple traveling exhibitions in the biggest Western museums in the past decades.

  9. I heard it from Waldemar Januszczak in

  10. Then either they were stolen long ago and then found again or Waldemar Januszczak is just wrong. The British museum for example and the Boston museum of fine arts had temporary exhibitions about the ife heads where almost all of them were on display, and in their websites the objects are cited as original.

  11. Oh wow! I never knew this!! Thank you so much for posting!
