|Comments||The stolen Kushan Buddha, bought from NYC dealer Nancy Weiner for $ 1.08mil USD, will be returned to India. Technically it will be deaccessioned and revert to the dealer's ownership with the NGA reclaiming the purchase cost thanks to a dealer's guarantee. Weiner could not provide a legal export certificate for the piece so NGA gets the money, and India gets the piece.|
