Buyer, Check those Docs: Documentation Verification Fail = Kushan Buddha Problems

Chasing Aphrodite has a post ('The Kushan Buddhas: Nancy Wiener, Douglas Latchford and New Questions about Ancient Buddhas' 1st Feb 2015) about a statue that Canada’s Royal Ontario Museum did due diligence on before purchase and refused by buy - but then somebody else did. it ranges in subject matter from two British ex-pats in SE Asia, one in Hong Kong and another in Bangkok, a Manhattan gallery with a cagey doorkeeper, a looted archaeological site in India to questionable collecting histories. Another good read from Jason Felch, but with many questions still unanswered. I am convinced that truth will out in the end.
