Australia returns ancient statue to China

Australian authorities returned to China a statue of Guanyin, a Buddhism goddess, from the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912) in a return ceremony held at the Chinese Embassy in Canberra on Mar 5, 2015.

At the event, the statue was handed over by Australia's Minister for the Arts Senator George Brandis to Chinese Ambassador to Australia Ma Zhaoxu, in accordance with a bilateral commitment to return and protect cultural property.
