The Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) Foundation acquired the 75.7 cm bronze idol from Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch Limited in 2001. After deaccession of the artwork recently, the AGSA said it had followed standard protocols for its acquisition that were widely accepted as professionally rigorous in 2001.

Special officer appointed by the High Court of India, former Inspector General of Police of Idol Wing, A.G. Ponn Manickavel sent a copy of the FIR report and final Provenance documents to AGSA with a formal request for the statue’s repatriation. 

Deputy High Commissioner for India to Australia, Mr. Karthikeyan, has been negotiating with the AGSA regarding this precious idol’s repatriation for the last one year.


This idol is expected to reach New Delhi by air. Curator of AGSA Ms Jan Robinson and a senior colleague will accompany the idol.  It will be handed over to the Director General, Archaeological Survey of India in a day or two, following which it will be sent to its rightful place in Tamil Nadu.
