The National Gallery of Australia has made a lengthy statement on their ongoing ownershop of a 12th century bronze sculpture of Shiva as a result of the man they bought it from facing criminal charges for looting.
The Gallery is quite rightly insisting they have followed all the protocols and await the result of the trial.
