These Peruvian pre-Hispanic artefacts were returned to the Peruvian embassy. They were given voluntarily by the Colombian institution to the Peruvian ambassador to proceed with their subsequent return as they constitute a part of the cultural heritage of Peru. This is the latest of many such gestures by foreign governments this year. Among the most notable came from Argentina and Germany earlier this year.
