Under common law in Kansas, a child must be under the complete supervision of an adult. The fee the artist Bill Lyons set for the sculpture - "Aphrodite di Kansas City" - is $130k. Therefore, Sarah Goodman, mother of the child who toppled the art work in the museum, could be declared negligent - and responsible to pay for it. It was not insured. The museum had its own insurance company - Travelers - send her a bill for the $130k.
