Houston, Texas - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents last month seized a 16th century tapestry stolen from Spain, under the National Stolen Property Act.

The tapestry was seized in November from a local business under an HSI initiative called "Hidden Relic." This initiative is designed to investigate, recover and repatriate stolen cultural property.
