I agree that art should be available for all to observe, ponder and enjoy. Creating replicas of these pieces could be one solution, so that we aren’t removing the piece from its original country of origin. I think you bring up a great example, the Aphrodite of Knidos. Works should belong in their country of origin; it is true that they make be key to that culture’s history.
