Louvre asks for US$1 mil. to buy precious statuettes

PARIS--The Louvre museum in Paris will launch an appeal for a million dollars to help it pay for two medieval ivory statuettes that resurfaced recently, its director said Monday.

The museum has until Jan. 31 to find 800,000 euros (US$1.0 million) to buy the statuettes, director Henri Loyrette told AFP.

The total price asked by the private owner is 2.6 million euros, of which the Friends of the Louvre Society has raised half, while the art insurer Axa Art is chipping in 500,000 euros.
