The Looty Manifesto


Our whole mission is for  NFTs to flip the stolen art held in museums. We go to museums, loot back culturally significant artworks and return them to their rightful owners.

The Process

We call this Digital repatriation, there are currently 1000s of stolen artworks in museums and private collections around the. With many attempts to return these artworks failing.

How we work

How we work

Our 'Looters' go to the these museums and steal back the artworks (digitally) and mint them to the blockchain. We return the ownership of these artworks as an NFT to their original owners. While giving you the opportunity to own and contribute the return of these objects

How we work

This first edition is repatriated back to the original owner. Royalties of any additional sales are paid back to the original artwork, raising its value and subsequently raising the value of all editions.

The first in our Looty series is the well documented Benin bronzes

Released in editions of 100, with the the 1st edition being allocated to the original owner of this artwork The Oba of Benin. The current Oba of Benin will have this piece "returned" to his kingdom. The sale of each additional NFT will pay royalties of 20% back to the original owner, in this case The Oba of Benin. This guarantees that we are giving back to the original owners and increasing the value the artwork.

What happens when this digital artwork surpasses the value of the physical (stolen) artwork, Will the British Museum give it back then?
