Celia Eberle: Loot

Lioness Attacking a Nubian

Opening reception for the artist Friday, September 23, 6-8pm

Perhaps it's only fitting that an international treasure should turn up in Texas. "It's a little more up-market than the kind of thing I am normally attracted to," said Bill Davenport, the proprietor of Bill's Junk at 1125 E 11th St. in Houston. Lioness Attacking a Nubian, which had been missing from the Baghdad Museum since it was looted in 2003 is one of the famous Assyrian Ivories, discovered in 1952.
