Five lost Cambodian artifacts, handed over by the family of the late antique collector Douglas Latchford, have been returned to Cambodia from Britain, a Cambodian spokesman said on Thursday (Sept 30).

“In the initial stage, five Cambodian masterpieces were returned from the United Kingdom to their homeland Cambodia on Wednesday evening,” Culture and Fine Arts Ministry’s secretary of state and spokesman Hab Touch told Xinhua.

The five returned artifacts included a stone sculpture of Shiva and Skanda, a half male and half female deity, a male deity, a Prajnaparamita statue, and a bronze boat prow, he said.
