I recently read on the Net about the difficulty of returning the Axsum obelisk from Rome to Ethiopia because of lack of Italian funds and American airplanes. 

 

If these are the only issues holding up the return of the obelisk to Ethiopia, is it not possible to cut the pieces to smaller parts and flow them back in smaller airplanes? If this is a viable option, it may be possible to raise the money on the Net.

 

I am thus writing this email to get your input before I set up an Internet site to raise the money on the WWW to cover the cost. I would also appreciate it if you let me know how much this heritage move would cost and where to send the money.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Aberra Molla
