This is so sad. Why try to destroy such priceless artefacts? The human race can be so stupid sometimes

Tragic, but the human species seems to have a predilection for destruction... hidden deep within its own flawed psyche.

Sad and not understanding why thieves have to be so destructive...steal, if you must, but stop destroying everything else. I know, neatness not required in a greedy thief. Noted with thanks.

You can find those artifacts in the homes of the elite!

The statue of the married couple, the one that was broken by the criminals, was iconic. It was featured in almost every class that I have taken. It has also been featured in many magazines. Now its smashed on the floor

What a sick and primitive lot of people. I guess these artifacts will end up in private collections.
