The National Gallery of Australia will remove from public display a Dancing Shiva statue that is at the centre of an international antiquities smuggling scandal. However, 21 other items purchased by the Canberra-based gallery from disgraced antiquities dealer Subhash Kapoor, who is currently on trial in India for looting temples, will remain on public display.
