Greek gold olive wreath at Christies

As you may know we try to bring stolen ancient greek artifacts back to Greece. Already we have a collection, in the near future, we want to make a museum of artifacts that came back to Greece without the visitors to pay tickets or anything.

We started back to 2011 and until now the cost is big for us to make it happened.

So we will need your help as well...

If you want to support us donate or share this post.

Our new target is this gold olive wreath
