Government in Hot Pursuit of Heritage Robbers

Published: 15th Mar 2015 06:04:04 AM

It all started with the Parrot Lady in Canada, a voluptuous woman with a parrot poised on her bare back. Her sculptured figure draped in exquisite garments clinging to her graceful limbs represents the feminine ideal of timeless Indian beauty. She is a life-sized 12th century Khajuraho sculpture which disappeared from India, nobody knows when, and surfaced in the Department of Canadian Heritage, in Edmonton in 2011. Mystery surrounds her appearance; the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) records reveal she was never reported missing.
