Elgin Marbles in UK ‘like cutting Mona Lisa in half’

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has again called for the return of the Elgin Marbles, saying that having some of the artefacts in London and the rest in Athens is like cutting the Mona Lisa in half.

Also known as the Parthenon Sculptures, the Ancient Greek treasures in the British Museum were brought to the UK by British diplomat Lord Elgin in the early 19th Century.

About half of them remain in Greece, where they are now housed in the Parthenon Museum.
