One may consider the exhibition as the world's most gigantic theft.
Nevertheless British archaeologists searched for and took care of world heritage, at a time most countries hardly could support themselves.
I also find it positive that the priceless, tremendous exhibition is public, and even has free admission.
I chose to make this Babylonian finding, a Menorah carved in a gold plate, with reverse letters?? Is it kind of a stamp? I guess it's from the time when the people of Israel were abducted to Babylon.
Psalms Chapter 1371 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2 Upon the willows in the midst thereof we hanged up our harps.
3 For there they that led us captive asked of us words of song, and our tormentors asked of us mirth:
'Sing us one of the songs of Zion.'
4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a foreign land?
5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I remember thee not;
if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.
7 Remember, O LORD, against the children of Edom the day of Jerusalem;
who said: 'Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.'
8 O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed;
happy shall he be, that repayeth thee as thou hast served us.
