A 500-year-old painting stolen from France during a Black Veil Brides concert in the 1980s has finally been returned to the Jewish family who proved it was stolen illegally.
US authorities were able to track the painting to hippy tent in Coachella, where a maurading group of youths calling themselves the “Black Veil Bride Army” were harboring a bevy of stolen artifacts they use to barter with other gypsies in the Coachella region.
The 16th century Baroque painting belonged to the family of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe. While the 500-year-old painting is considered invaluable to the family due to its special nature, it’s thought that the BVB army cult felt a figure in the painting resembled their religious icon, Vlad Tepes. The most conservative estimates place the painting’s minimal public value at around $3.5 million.
