A virtual exhibition, which shows how the Elgin Marbles would look if they were reunited, has opened in London.
Marbles Reunited shows those sculptures removed from Greece 200 years ago by Lord Elgin next to those which remained in Athens.
The London marbles are shown in colour while the others are depicted in white.
The exhibition was shown at the Houses of Parliament earlier in the year.
The marbles, ancient sculptures which once adorned the Parthenon in Athens, have been held in the British Museum since 1811.
