California University student Gevorg Martirosyan organized the online campaign aiming to collect signatures for the petition to return the remains of pagan Goddess Anahit’s to Armenia.
At the moment the bronze status is located in the British Museum.
“I was confronted by the those who thought this campaign had failure written all over it because the British Museum would never give out it its collections.
In fact, Egypt has recovered some 5000 of ancient artifacts over the years and 400 of which came from the British Museum. If we fail to spare 2 minutes of our time to submit a signature, we cannot expect anything to be returned to Armenia,” he said in an e-mail letter to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
