The British Museum trivializes the Parthenon Sculptures, Mendoni says

Greek Minister of Culture, Lina Mendoni, made a statement after a London Fashion Week show took place in front of the Parthenon Marbles at the British Museum.
"By organizing a fashion show in the halls where the Parthenon Sculptures are exhibited, the British Museum, once again, proves its zero respect for the masterpieces of Pheidias," Mendoni said in a statement.

"The directors of the British Museum trivialize and insult not only the monument but also the universal values that it transmits. The conditions of display and storage of the sculptures, at the Duveen Gallery, are constantly deteriorating. It is time for the stolen and abused sculptural masterpieces to shine in the Attic light," she added.
