Gaddafi villa pool statues ...

Apparently there were a dozen of these around a pool in the Gaddafi compound, which the rebels smashed once they'd taken it. The various Ben Ali relatives in Tunisia had Roman garden statuary, but this piece ... The head is not ancient for sure, nor are the hands, but the body might be (I can't tell from the photo on my tiny Blackberry screen).

  1. So it's kinda like HEY LOOK Gaddafi was a bad guy who looted priceless and irreplaceable Roman Statues and antiquities, which we then completely destroyed ? I mean are they complaining he had something they thought was ancient (even though he took care of them) and even though they immediately destroyed all of them?
