15026Re: [ANE-2] Licit Antiquities Trade
- Jul 16, 2013I wonder.
Is art, such as paintings by Rubens, Botticelli, Picasso, Chagall or
sculptures by Michelangelo, Celini, Moore, to
mention just a few, are they not also cultural heritage ?
There is no need in preventing selling such "artifacts" ?
Don't they have to be only in Museums (or as is
the case with the majority of the works of art) be in museums storage ?
Why an ancient Hebrew seal looted from a grave is
cultural heritage and is not to be sold (and of course published),
but a 15th century Gutenberg Bible can be freely circulate on the market
