GIVE A HOOT, DON'T LOOT!
by Serena Abdallah
Our quality crafted Tote Bags are hand sewn in America using durable, yet lightweight, poly poplin fabric. All seams and stress points are double stitched for durability. Available in 13" x 13", 16" x 16" and 18" x 18" variations, the tote bags are washable, feature original artwork on both sides and a sturdy 1" wide cotton webbing strap for comfortably carrying over your shoulder.
This design features the famous Owl of Athena, found on Ancient Greek coins and paintings, looking bound and distorted.
What started as a joke in my Ethics In Archaeology class last semester has become a reality. More people should be aware of how looting antiquities robs people of their culture. Don't think it matters? Go to a museum and ask how they acquired a majority of their objects (but take caution and don't blame me if you are kicked out, banned, or arrested)!
Spread culture without harming it, and spread the word of how not to do so!
