The Parthenon Sculptures

Dear British Prime Minister, David Cameron,

Let's get it straight...
Elgin STOLE them, they are NOT the Elgin Marbles.
The sculptures held captive in the British Museum are
the PARTHENON Marbles 

You cannot change the past, what's done is done.

But you CAN do something about the future,
You CAN change the present.

Do what's right.
Return the PARTHENON sculptures to their rightful home, 
Return the PARTHENON Sculptures to Greece. 

Global Greek World

There are no such things as the Elgin Marbles.
There is a Michael Angelo David.
There is a Da Vinci Venus.
There is a Praxitelles Hermes.
There is a Turner ‘Fishermen at Sea’.
There are no Elgin Marbles!
Melina Mercouri, 
Minister of Culture, Greece
in her speech to the Oxford Union  in 1986

There are NO Elgin Marbles.

They are the PARTHENON Marbles.

The PARTHENON Sculptures. 

Listen to Stephen Fry talk about the Parthenon Sculptures at the International Colloquy on the Parthenon held in Sydney in November 2013...
he tells it exactly as it is.
Thank you Stephen!

At Global Greek World, We ♥ Greece...and it shows!
