Egypt recovers smuggled artifacts from Germany

CAIRO:  Egyptian antiquities headed for the auction block in Germany will be repatriated to Egypt, Mohamed Hegazy, Egypt’s ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany, told state-owned MENA Tuesday.

The artifacts, which had been shown in a mass exhibition in Berlin, may stay in Germany for some repairs in cooperation with the Egyptian Museum in Berlin before their return to Egypt, Hegazy said.

The Egyptian Embassy will host a concert April 2 to declare the receipt of the artifacts, and express thanks to German authorities and the Egyptian Museum in Berlin for their effort, he added. Read more.

yeah ok i’ve had enough

people are telling gotzeus fans that it’s bad/wrong to ship gotzues but honestly, shut the fuck up. It’s not like we’re hating on something or is being rude we’re just shipping them if you don’t like that then fucking ignore it because you don’t have the right to tell us what’s right or wrong, that’s for us to decide. so shut up.

Don’t take it personally guys but if you think that this applies to you then I do suggest you stop :)
