Saw a documentary only this week about the disgraced and crimminal activities of a so called world class art dealer who has been operating for many years in the business of stolen art treasures. Shocking really just how many important art galleries were hoodwinked. What seemed evident was that a lot of them just didn't do proper checks on the claims made about providence. The Dancing Shiva is at the centre of a storm in Australian art circles and I'm pleased to see that the right decision that it is to be returned to India, has been made. What other decision could be made now that the proof of it's theft are out there. I wonder how the art gallery will recover the money they paid for it........
