Just walking up the steps of Propylaea…you are in awe!
The great entrance…passing through the massive columns of Propyleae…
In early 1800s, Elgin the vandal…hacked and decapitated…the most renowned building in the world…
The Temple of Goddess Athena! …She Wants Them Back!
The Marble Sculptures belong to Her.
The Acropolis Museum…a marvel of Art and modern engineering…waiting for their return.
The old Athens under your feet…Ictinus and Callicrates with Phidias overlooking from the Parthenon as the Athenian sun bathes the creations of Phidias.
British Museum, make it right. Give Them Back!
