Should Culturally or Historically Significant Artwork Be Property of the State?
It would cost a lot of money for the state to buy this art off private owners and collectors.
As it is only the most significant artworks in question, this is a limited cost.
Any cost is worth it to achieve the benefits of having the state own this artwork and making it more accessible to the general public.
To many cultures, certain artworks are seen as priceless and as such no amount of money can compensate for their loss.
This puts a price on the cultural and historical artwork and so, by extension, puts a price or a value on the culture and aspect of history in question.
