Australia is preparing to return a dancing Shiva statue that was stolen from an Indian temple and sold to the National Gallery of Australia.

The gallery has removed from display the 900-year-old Shiva Nataraja idol it bought for $5.6 million in 2007 from New York dealer Subhash Kapoor.

Kapoor is facing trial in Chennai, India, for allegedly trafficking stolen antiquities, including that statue, from two Indian temples
