Ancient Art..

Really liked this piece by Phillip Adams in the Australian today, about perserving art and ancient artifacts, and a suggestion so that they could be seen by a maximum number of people and well preserved. A snippet below.
Let the Cairo Museum, the Uffizi and others rent their spare treasures to the world’s museums. Egypt, for example, has multiples of major pieces and no room to display them. And make it a condition that rented works are given necessary restoration by the host museum. The world shares its history and heritage. Everyone – except the looters and the profiteers – wins.
