The ethical concerns of taking funerary sculptures out of context
Dr Maria Athanasekou, Art Historian, Lecturer at the University of the Aegean, School of Social Anthropology and History

In March 2017 it was announced that the tombstone of Sofia Afentaki, will be removed, permanently, for preservation reasons, to the National Glyptoteque and a replica will take its place. This paper seeks to discuss the ethical concerns of removing the sculpture from its original context from a kaleidoscope of, often, contradictory, views.
