Looted ‘Sumerian Mona Lisa’ found in Iraq

She was looted from Baghdad’s Iraq Museum in April of 2003, along with thousands more artifacts from the Cradle of Civilization, 10,000 of which have yet to be recovered.

On a tip, Iraqi police and US troops found her buried in 6 inches of mud in someone’s garden, entirely unharmed.

Now on to the find the rest of the missing. Here’s hoping the authorities get at least 10,000 more dead-on accurate anonymous tips.
