The Malaga businessman Vicente Jiménez breaks off negotiations with the Junta de Andalucía and will exhibit his collection of Phoenician terracotta figures in his own museum. A fortune of incalculable value that comes from a shipwreck in front of the current Lebanon.
On December 15, 2021 he met with Francisco Carrión, journalist of El Independiente to discuss the subject.
Carrión mentions: They survived two millennia lodged on the seabed and have now weathered tough negotiations whose shipwreck the owner of the treasure confirms in conversation with El Independiente. Vicente Jiménez Ifergan, a collector of Jewish mother and Christian father, owns a unique collection in the world: about 200 Phoenician terracotta statues, a Mediterranean transcript of the terracotta soldiers of Xian in China. A “rara avis” that he wished to cede temporarily to the Junta de Andalucía and that he will finally exhibit himself in his private gallery, in the center of Malaga.
