The Parthenon Marbles – A Clash of Art, Law and International Relations

SCULPTURE: The Parthenon Marbles lay in The Acropolis in Athens for 2,000 years but in 1803 Thomas Bruce the 7th Earl of Elgin had them shipped to England because he feared the ongoing Ottoman conflict would further damage this historic artefact. However, the Greeks argue they were removed from Athens without permission and have demanded the return. My article here http://artsreviews.webs.com/
