Cultural artifacts: Who owns what?

Should the bust of Nefertiti be returned to Egypt?

Should the Parthenon marbles be returned to Greece?

This article seems a bit full of hot air, though I can understand why it is happening and being debated with such passion.

Is it about "ultimately about nationalism and symbolism?" Or should the artifacts be returned? Also, would the artifacts have even survived all these years in their own home countries?

"British Museum is Europe’s Western front in the global war over cultural patrimony...Egypt has asked for the return of the bust of Nefertiti in the Neues Museum in Berlin."
