According to specialists, the urn, from the archaeological site Laguna Pethá in Chiapas, has a high historical value intrinsically linked to the history and context of its people of origin.

As reported by the Mexican Secretariats of Culture and Foreign Relations, the urn recovery was thanks to the collaboration of the National Institute of Anthropology and History and Mexican Consulate in Detroit.

Mexico´s Foreign Secretariat said that the country´s intention is to restore the archaeological piece and display it alongside a twin urn that is on show at the museum.

‘The recovery of this Mayan urn and reunification with its twin artefact represent an act of great importance for Mexico and its historical heritage.’
