Should artifacts return home?

( Updated: 2015-03-26 08:59

Editor's note: The 1,000-year-old Buddha statue containing a mummified monk on show at the Hungarian Natural History Museum has been confirmed as a relic stolen from China in 1995. Should stolen artifacts be repatriated to their country of origin? You're welcome to leave your comments.

In my opinion, these artifacts should return to their origin. They should be viewed in their country of origin because they are part of the identity of the culture, and people in this culture should be able to see these things in their own country, not in another place.
