For my capstone project, I researched the legal and ethical debate of art repatriation for artefacts such as the Parthenon marbles, the ambum stone, and the Koh-I-Noor diamond. I first looked at the history and future of art repatriation and what certain country’s stances on repatriation were. Then, I picked three specific artifacts to inspect in depth. In each argument, I discuss the cultural significant and history of the artifact and each country’s claim on said work. After that, I give my opinion on whether or not to repatriate the work to its country of origin or if it should remain with the country the artifact remains in currently. For my project I created a research paper on said topic.
