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.
