Hindus want Queensland Gallery to return Lord Krishna statue if proven stolen

05 July, 2015

Hindus are urging The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) of Australia to expedite the provenance of Krishna and Uma statues "identified as requiring further research", and if proved stolen, return these to Hindu temples they originally belonged.

Queensland Government run QAGOMA has identified seven objects as "requiring further research" under its "Asian Art Provenance Research" project and the "supplied chain of ownership for these objects is currently being reviewed". These include a 13th century bronze "Krishna the jubilant butter thief" and 12th/13th century bronze "Shivakami Uma".
