"The Greek government has a just cause and it is time the British Museum recognized this and returned the marbles to Greece. This is not just what we are saying, this is what the United Nations has said, the European Parliament has said, and in one opinion poll after another, this is what the British people have also demanded. A horseman has his head in Athens and body in London. The Greek God Poseidon has his torso separated between Greece and the UK. This means that nobody can celebrate the marbles united in the place that they come from, which is a monument that represents Greek ancient history, and the birthplace of our modern civilization."- Mrs. Amal Clooney's statement on the Parthenon Sculptures in a Athens Press Conference (October, 2014)
