>>3648663so where do we stand on restoration of ancient monumentsshouldn't we want to bring them back to their former glory rather than watch them rot
>>3648663I haven't read much on it but it could be the Catholic Church's doing, they like breaking the noses off ancient pagan statues
>>3648792>shouldn't we want to bring them back to their former gloryNo because there's no real way to know how they looked originally and improvising or tacking on a copy would only bastardize the originalThe absolute best we can do is preserve what we have as it is, preventing further damage
>>3648948bullshit you can rebuild when you know how it looked like. you can clean up the sphinx
>>3648795literal bullshit, it looked like that from before the catholics got into power

My favorite so far is the 20 door tall puppy named Sun Spot sitting out in front of the city shelter. It's a wireframe that is covered entirely with polished stainless steel dog tags
