The Fine Arts Department (FAD) announced on Monday (August 24) that the process of repatriating 23 artefacts from museums in the US is heading in the right direction.

“Two key 11th-century stone lintels from Buri Ram’s Prasat Nong Hong and Sa Kaew’s Prasat Khao Lon, which were part of the permanent collection of the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco are currently waiting release in line with US laws,” FAD’s director-general Prateep Phengtako said.

These two lintels are expected to be returned to Thailand by March 2021.
