Good thing they got them safely out of the country before the Greeks blew them up again, sold them or stole them.  In the British Museum, the world can experience them (and so many other treasures) totally free. If you're in London, next to the Natural History Museum is the Victoria amp; Albert Museum (both free) - a hidden gem that has incredible plaster casts of the great scupltures of Europe before acid rain damaged them. Including The David, Moses, Trajans column etc. :-)

The British wouldn't  know the Olympic spirit even if  "it" hit them to the head. Those statues are Stolen and belong to Greece
