A German investigation into black market art has recovered two bronze horse statues that once stood in front of Adolf Hitler's grand chancellery building in Berlin as well as other Nazi-era pieces that had been lost for decades.
A Berlin Police Spokesman said officers in five states seized pieces including the massive bronze horse sculptures and a 16-foot by 33-foot granite relief.
The works were last seen in 1989 on display at a sports field in East Germany that was part of a Soviet barracks near the German capital, before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Eight Germans aged between 64 and 79 are being investigated in the case, as the Police spokesman added that many other works of art were found during the raids and authorities are now trying to determine their provenance.
