So back in 2016, when Kim and Kanye were building their mega-mansion in Calabasas with the help of Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt, a large package from overseas arrived at Los Angeles customs addressed to her and Axel. It was immediately seized.
The contents of the package was a limestone statue, (see left), which dates back to the first century, shows the lower half of a woman from the waist down and is entitled Fragment of Myron Samian Athena.
Officials say the statue was looted, plundered, stolen.
If you’ve seen Kims home, it’s white. All white. White furniture against white walls and white rugs with white poofs for sitting. So based on the criteria for decor, the all-white statue fits the bill.
Dailymail spoke to Kims team of deniers who said, “Kim never purchased this piece and this is the first that she has learned of its existence.”
“We believe it may have been purchased using her name without authorization and because it was never received, she was unaware of the transaction. We encourage an investigation and hope that it gets returned to the rightful owners.”
I mean, what were they gonna say? And you just know that Kanye would deem himself plenty worthy of a treasure from 100 AD.
The sculpture’s precise value is unknown, but it arrived as part of a 5.5-ton shipment described as containing 40 antiques, modern furniture, and decorative objects, valued at $745,882.
