Pre-Angkorian antiquities on loan to museum in US


Recommended Posts

The Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts is carefully packing and crating eight pre-Angkorian antiquities from the National Museum to send to the US state of Ohio for an exhibition titled Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain at the Cleveland Museum of Art.


“This exhibition is a cooperative effort between the National Museum of Cambodia and the Cleveland Museum of Art in the US. It is not an international expo with the participation of other parties,” National Museum director Chhay Visoth told The Post on October 21.


He said the Cleveland Museum of Art agreed to contribute a portion of the proceeds from the exhibition to the culture ministry to spend on national heritage preservation, and the statues will be returned to Cambodia once the exhibition has ended.
