Dugup Dish a Condemnation of Some People's Attitudes

Spotted by 'Chasing Aphrodite':
Barakat LA Assyrian Terracotta Dish Depicting a Standing Figure SKU SP.037 Circa 900 BC to 700 BC Dimensions:  8.5″ (22 cm) high, Terracotta, Origin:  Mesopotamia, Gallery Location:  USA (no collecting history cited upfront): "This well preserved masterpiece of Assyrian art speaks to the brilliant sophistication and elegance of their civilization",
but its purchase does not say anything good about our own, destroying sites to dig up items like this just to flog them off.
