Whoops, were those *your* artifacts?

Gettygate continues apace. With the Getty caught up in a scandal surrounding the purchase of stolen artifacts, an Italian culture minister announced today that the museum is returning three of the pieces…or rather, ‘donating’ them so they avoid having to admit anything. The trial in Italy will not be affected by this return.

Boy, don’t you miss the old days when museums were filled with artifacts stolen fair and square from colonized cultures instead of purchased from shady art dealers?
