Police in Denmark are looking for two men suspected in the theft of a small bust by French sculptor Auguste Rodin – from a Copenhagen museum.

Reports said the men had likely neutralized the alarm – when they visited the museum nine days earlier. They were able to walk away with the rare sculpture in a bag – without being stopped – during normal visiting hours.

The dark-greenish patina bronze work titled “Man with the Broken Nose” dates from around 1863 – and is one of several pieces Rodin created – of an elderly Parisian workman.
