http://www.thesmartset.com/article/article05051001.aspx

... and an opeddish thing on 'who owns antiquities':

http://www.egypttoday.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=8966

... in a similar vein with a vague Elgin focus:

from a Chinese shipwreck found a few years ago:

... and UNESCO was worried about it:

http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=34603&Cr=unesco&Cr1=

I guess Anon couldn't make it:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/09/weekinreview/09smith.html

... but perhaps he'll show up for a Manet self portrait coming to
auction:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/08/arts/design/08manet.html

... or a Picasso:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/02/arts/design/02auctions.html

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/7681651/Chair-in-which-Britains-only-
