Museums struggle to protect art from public defacement

May 1, 2014

In 1985, more than 80 stone statues in Rome's Villa Borghese gardens lost their noses. They were eventually recovered, found in a plastic bag that belonged to a wandering biology professor. At the time, he told police he was being followed by the KGB. Then he produced a note informing them that he was a UFO. Sawed-off noses are just one of the many bizarre acts of vandalism afflicting museums and public spaces around the globe.   [...]

Why is it that on so many ancient statues, it has been a practice of anonymous 'desecrationists' since antiquity, to deface the noses of statues? This is something I always noticed, but never found an official explanation for. There's plenty online about Egypt, and an attempt to 'shroud the black racial features' of rulers etc etc, but this is something widespread in the ancient Indo-European world, far beyond just Egypt.


For example: Mt Nemrut (same name as the ancient city that ISIS just bulldozed) - the region in 'Turkey' where ancient conflict took place between proto-Aryans and proto-Jews, the origin of which so many myths of gods, heroes, and titans etc were based. Look at the noses, and the figures are identifiably 'Indo-European'

Jew noses generally turn down, probably the most recognizable feature of the jew.  Pure Aryan noses generally turn up.  Of course now, after thousands of years of mixing, noses are  essentially all "shades of gray."  Was the nose the Mark of Cain?  Is the jewish agenda to completely eliminate the distinction?

I think in regards to these ancient statues, yes indeed.

I remember the protestants blowing up statues
I remember communists blowing up churches

ITs basically a trademark whenever cultural, historical and religious property is being blown up it's a telltale sign of jews driving the whatever force doing it.

ISIS militants destroy ancient remains of 2,000yo city of Hatra – Iraq govt

March 07, 2015

Iraqi authorities said that Islamic State extremists have demolished the remains of the ancient city of Hatra in the north of the country, following a “bulldozing” of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, also located close to Mosul.

Employees of the Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities have reported that the Hatra site, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1987, was destroyed on Saturday, an official told Reuters. It is hard to estimate the damage, as no images of the demolition have been received so far.

However, a local resident told Reuters that there was a powerful explosion early on Saturday, recalling other people’s reports that ISIS militants had already destroyed some of the larger constructions and were bulldozing others.

The Islamic State militants began carrying away artifacts from Hatra on Thursday – before starting to destroy the city on Saturday, Saeed Mamuzini, a Kurdish official from Mosul, told AP.

The remains of Hatra’s massive fortifications and temple complex dated back to between the first century BC and the second century AD, and the city, founded in the days of the Seleucid Empire, a large Hellenistic state, was about two kilometers in diameter. Hatra is located about 110km (68 miles) south-west of Mosul, which currently is the largest city controlled by ISIS.

Earlier this week, Islamic State militants bulldozed the ruins of the Assyrian city of Nimrud, located nearby. The radical interpretation of Sunni Islam stands behind the vandalism of the terrorists that control large territories of Iraq and Syria, and it believes that shrines have to be razed to the ground.

The action triggered an immediate reaction from UNESCO. “We cannot remain silent. The deliberate destruction of cultural heritage constitutes a war crime,” said UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova. “I call on all political and religious leaders in the region to stand up and remind everyone that there is absolutely no political or religious justification for the destruction of humanity’s cultural heritage.”

A week ago, a video was released showing the militants raging in the museum of Mosul, smashing priceless Assyrian and Hellenistic statues and artifacts that date from the seventh century BC.

According to the Antiquities Ministry, it is the lack of the actual international response to ISIS attacks on historic sites that has failed to prevent the group from sticking to this path.

“The delay in international support for Iraq has encouraged terrorists to commit another crime of stealing and demolishing the remains of the city of Hatra,” its statement said, as cited by Reuters.

In February, the jihadists blew up the Mosul Public Library using homemade bombs. The previous month, the militants took all the books from the Central Library of Mosul, leaving only Islamic texts. Last July, they destroyed the tomb of the prophet Jonah, also located in the seized city.

Pop culture prefigures this: a 60's Batman episode featured the Joker spraying priceless old art with gobs of paint from squirt guns. Morally upright Batman was of course horrified but the (Jewish) art scene was thrilled & proclaimed the attacks ~'the true spirit of art'.
