Unfortunately, artifacts and artwork, like the statue of the Goddess of Morgantina are stolen and sold to unsuspecting collectors and museums.

Apparently, it was a bit of an extended legal battle, as to the rightful owner of this statue between the Malibu, Paul Getty Museum and Italy.

After a tangled web, today, you can go visit the Goddess of Morgantina statue in her permanent home, as of 2011 at the Archaeological Museum of Aidone, a province in Enna, Sicily.
