I find two things quite incredible:
The first is that anyone capable of putting together an 8 person crew is simply going to melt down the piece. Just as all the ancient burial sites were looted so or our modern treasures. There is a fence for these objects and an albiet sick collector to recieve them.
That these institutions have so grossly underestimated modern art is appalling. There is probably a "job" here for someone that might want to point out how to provide security and document the objects scattered around. Its simply irresponsible to not take care of masterpieces, shame on the owners!
