I was visiting the UN building in Geneva today, I was in a hall that contains several artifacts from several countries (paintings, sculptures etc) each is a gift from a country that is a member of the UN to represent it’s art and culture.
Except for one piece, which is the Egyptian one, a statue of Maat the Egyptian God, the sign next to it read: “Gift presented by H.E (her excellency) Suzanne Mubarak” why on earth would the wife of the ex-president have the right to distribute our heritage and cultural as personal gifts in her name?
I want the treasures of my ancestors back where they belong, in Egypt. Or at least if it is really necessary, that sign should read that it’s a gift from Egypt!!!
Here photos of the sign and the statue:
