16th Century Icons Stolen 30 years Ago Now Found in Moscow

Icons of the 16th and 17th centuries, stolen from Veliky Ustyug Historical Architectural and Art Museum in 1984 have been recently found in a Moscow Museum owned by a private collector.
      All the icons have been identified by employees of the Museum of the Vologda Region and confiscated. At present the icons undergo an expert examination in the State Scientific Research Institute of Restoration.
      A criminal case was launched after the theft of the icons in 1984, however neither the icons, nor the criminal were found. Now employees of the criminal investigation are trying to pick up the trail of the criminal.
      Ten icons of the 16th and 17th centuries represent rare examples of iconography of the northern school. Their auction cost makes about 50 million roubles.
