GIVE A HOOT, DON'T LOOT!

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.
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!
