Heads return

The Honolulu Academy of Arts will return two Angkorian stone heads to Cambodia after

discovering they had been looted. One is a 9th century stone head of Shiva, the other

a 12th century head of an asura (demon). The artifacts will arrive in the country

early next week. The academy said the Khmer artifacts had been bought from reputable

sources and gifted to the academy. The handover ceremony will take place April 26

at the National Museum in Phnom Penh where the heads will go on display.
