Statues and other artifacts seized from a disgraced police commander’s hidden trove may not be treasures after all.
“I don’t know why they think the statues might be real,” Kong Vireak, director of the National Museum of Cambodia, said in the Phnom Penh Post of the five objects in question.
Thailand’s Fine Arts Department said expert relic hunters helped choose the five particular objects which included a Khmer-style Buddha, Shiva, Brahma and multi-limbed figure. They believed them to be about six centuries old
