art and prejudice

the auctioning of gandhi artifacts is stirring up contreversy in the art world. basicly the fact is that most of the really large and famous museums most of the collections are made of pilfered artifacts and art. TO listen to the explaination of the curators why these work of art or artifacts can not be given back to the country they originated, has a whiff of patronising contempt.
