Artifacts Returned to Cairo Museum

How special is this picture to see not only the statue of Tutankhamun back in the museum but also some of Yuya's shabti and a whole number of objects that have been retrieved since the January revolution of 2011. It makes me wonder if the Tutankhamun statuette pictured should be left in its current state as an example of the decades of manipulation of the museums budget that allowed the robbery to  occur!
