I am on the side of giving back art and artifacts to their original owners, if that can be established. In the case of the Elgin Marbles, everyone knows they came from Greece. Case closed.

Nice ones :)!
Well, if everyone would give back what they stole centuries ago, tourism would be worth the while for some countries again and others wouldn't get any tourists any more *grin*

Marble is expensive, if someone had mine, I'd want it back too. :)

No wonder. Those are really cool -- and it's great you got to photograph them.
