AFGHANISTAN. 1995. The National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul.

Following the civil war in 1992, the museum was looted numerous times, and of the estimated 100,000 objects on display, around 70% of the artefacts were stolen, according to Fahim Rahimi, the chief curator of the National Museum of Afghanistan. Rahimi says countries such as England, Switzerland, US, Iran, Norway, Denmark and Germany have returned some looted objects to Afghanistan but he would like to see more items sent back.

A Selection of Pyu Buddhist Sculpture
As Burma gradually opens it’s inevitable more Pyu images will come to light & more research will be done, but in the meantime these pieces are the only clues we have to the beauty & quality of early Buddhist sculpture in Burma. Enjoy some of of the rarest Buddha images in existence.
The Pyu kingdom was an ethnic Tibeto- Burman Buddhist kingdom that flourished in central and northern Burma from the early years of the first millennium A.D. to about 832, when its capital Halin was sacked by forces of the Nanchao kingdom of southern China.
