Art theft are strong words, but the more one travels, the more one realizes what, done in the name of exploration, is really just theft.
I will say, many objects have been saved this way, avoiding wars, earthquakes and modern day plunderers, but it is sad to go to the original spot and have to look at a plaster cast copy.
