A conservator stands next to a Parthenon fragment, on loan from the Antonino Salinas Regional Archaeological Museum of Palermo, at the Parthenon Gallery of the Acropolis Museum, in Athens, on Monday, Jan. 10, 2022. The 2,500-year-old fragment is formally on loan from Sicily’s A. Salinas Archaeological Museum, but both sides have said it could well end up permanently in Athens. Greek officials hope the move could encourage the British Museum to return its own extensive collection of sculptures from the Parthenon Temple on the Acropolis – a decades-old Greek demand that the London museum has so far rebuffed.

A mural called “Humanistic Education” by artist Fred Ross showing three shirtless models on the left, which were based on sketch of a young Tom Connors , is shown at Harbour View High School in Saint John, N.B., in this undated handout photo. Decked out in his trademark Stetson and plywood-pounding cowboy boots, it’s hard to imagine country-folk legend Stompin’ Tom Connors as a male model. And yet, a recently acquired artist’s drawing from the 1950s - obtained by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton - offers a revealing glimpse of Canada’s best loved troubadour as a lanky, squared-jawed teen wearing nothing but tight athletic shorts and high-topped sneakers.
