My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the police museum when on holiday last month. What amased me was the fish and manorah stand. This symbol was only discovered in the 1960's yet here in India in your museum was this symbol stand a symbol which date back to the early Christian 2000 years ago! I would encourage the museum to investigate where it came from as it is not orthodox Jewish but christian-Jewish dating back to the Acts of the Apostels in the Bible. I could be mistaken.
