My wife said "They can't rebuild it. It's gone. They can only build a replica of it."Can you imagine the price today to rebuild something like that? And the art inside can never be replaced.
It is often the case that what is rebuilt is more glorious than what was destroyed. I think it'll be 100 years or more before that time however. It's devastating.My wife said "They can't rebuild it. It's gone. They can only build a replica of it."
I think she's right. And that's part of what is so traumatic for the world here - that implicit knowledge that something like that can never actually be "rebuilt".
Some brave souls had to run into that inferno to get that priceless stuff out.FWIW, my twitter feed is suggesting that the most priceless relics and art works seem to have been saved.
