Statues from the Acropolis of Athens

Greece – To explain and protect the historical environment. The antiquities of Greece need to be protected and available to all, two goals at war with each other. The acropolis in Athens is a good example of the difficulties. Are these statues to be displayed in a building or in their original location in the weather? Are they to be displayed in Athens or in a more convenient location There is no perfect solution but travel photographs can illustrate the difficulties and insure that the problem is discussed from different points of view.
