Posted at 6:33 pm in British Museum, Elgin Marbles

American Mary Phillips made a protest about the Parthenon Marbles a few weeks ago, standing outside the British Museum dressed as a caryatid.

During the protest though, there was an unexpected appearance by British Museum director Neil MacGregor coming over to see what was going on.
