The Lion of Knidos

In 1859 a team headed by Sir Charles Newton removed the magnificent Knidos Lion from Turkey and brought it to the British Museum where it is now on show. Recently I met Sibel who runs the cafe at the ancient site of Knidos near Datca, Turkey. She is passionate about seeking the return of the Lion statue to its original place. Turkish people now realise it's importance. Please sign this petition to help Sibel realise her dream.
