via Khmer Times, 4 Apr 2019: Another artefact repatriated to Cambodia. This medicine Buddha sculpture was reportedly taken from Angkor Wat in the 1930s.

After decades of being overseas, the “King of Khmer Medicine” artefact has been returned by a Cambodian-American man who bought it in the United States.

The National Museum yesterday held a welcoming ceremony for the ancient Buddhist statue.

David Leng, the man who brought the statue, said it came from Hawaii, and that it was handed to the government in order to allow younger generations of Cambodians to know their ancestral heritage.
