LONDON: A 12th century bronze Buddha statue stolen from a museum at Nnda in Bihar nearly 60 years ago was returned to India on Wednesday by the London's Metropolitan Police as part of a ceremony here to mark India's Independence Day.

伦敦:作为印度独立日庆典的一部分,周三伦敦警方将一尊12世纪的青铜佛像归还给印度。这尊佛像是从比哈尔那烂陀的一座博物馆被盗的,已经失窃近60年。

The bronze statue with silver inlay is one of the 14 statues stolen in 1961 from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) site museum in Nnda and changed several hands over the years before surfacing at a London auction.

1961年,那烂陀的印度考古博物馆被盗走14尊雕像,这尊镶银的青铜雕像是其中之一。在伦敦拍卖之前,它已被转手数次。

Once the dealer and the owner were made aware the sculpture was the same one that had been stolen from India, the Metropolitan Police said they cooperated with the Met's Art and Antiques Unit and agreed for the piece to be returned to India.

伦敦警方表示,交易商在得知这尊佛像和印度失窃的那尊后,配合伦敦警察厅艺术与古董组的工作,同意将佛像归还印度。

The statue was identified at a trade fair in March this year by Lynda Albertson of the Association for Research into Crimes Against Art (ARCA) and Vijay Kumar from the India Pride Project, who then alerted the police.

今年3月,反艺术犯罪研究协会(ARCA)的琳达·艾伯森(Lynda Albertson)和“印度骄傲计划”的维贾伊·库马尔(Vijay Kumar)在一个交易会上认出了这尊佛像,后者随后向警方报警。

Scotland Yard returned the statue stolen to the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, YK Sinha, as part of a ceremony to mark Independence Day at India House in London today.

伦敦警察厅将这尊佛像归还给了印度驻英国的高级专员YK Sinha,作为今天在伦敦举行的印度独立日庆典的一部分。

"I am delighted to return this piece of history. This is an excellent example of the results that can come with close cooperation between law enforcement, trade and scholars," said Met police detective chief inspector Sheila Stewart, who was accompanied by offi als from the UK's Department for digital, culture, media and sport at the handover ceremony.

“我很高兴能够促成这一重要文化遗产回归印度。这是执法部门、贸易部门和学者之间密切合作所取得的成果。”伦敦警察厅艺术与古董组的警官Sheila Stewart侦探说到在交接仪式上说到,英国数字、文化、媒体和体育部的官员也出席了交接仪式。

"Although this was stolen over 50 years ago, this did not prevent the piece being recognised and the credit must go to the eagle eye informants who made us aware that the missing piece had been located after so many years," she said.

她说:“虽然是在50多年前失窃的,但这件文物终被认出来了。这必须归功于那些目光敏锐的消息人士,他们帮助我们找到了失踪多年的文物。”

"I hope it will now go back to where it originally belongs ... On our Independence Day, it (return of the statue) highlights the multi-faceted cooperation between our two countries," he said, after a Tricolour-hoisting ceremony to mark India's 72nd Independence Day at the Indian High Commission in London.

在伦敦的印度高级委员会举行的第72个独立日三色旗仪式结束后,Sinha表示:“我希望佛像能回到原本属于它的地方。在我们的独立日,佛像的回归凸显了我们两国在多方面的合作。”

Detective constable Sophie Hayes of the Met's Art and Antique Unit said it had been established that there was no criminality by the current owner or the dealer who had been offering the stolen statue for sale.

伦敦警察厅艺术与古董组的警官Sophie Hayes表示,已经确定被盗佛像目前的主人或交易商没有犯罪行为。

"Indeed, from the outset they have cooperated fully with the police to resolve this matter and they have made the decision to return the sculpture via the police," Hayes said.

Hayes说:“事实上,从一开始,他们就和警方合作来解决这个问题,他们决定通过警方来归还雕像。”

"We are delighted to be able to facilitate the return of this important piece of cultural heritage to India," she added.

“我们很高兴能够帮助这一重要文化遗产回归印度,”她补充道。

The Art and Antiques Unit was founded 50 years ago and is one of the oldest specialist units in the Metropolitan Police Service. The unit prides itself on a "long history of reuniting owners with their stolen property".

艺术和古董组成立于50年前,是伦敦警察局历史最悠久的专业小组之一。

Michael Ellis, UK minister for arts, heritage and tourism, said: "As we celebrate India's Independence Day, I am proud to highlight the latest example of the UK's cultural diplomacy in action. Thanks to the work of the Metropolitan Police's Arts and Antiques Unit, we are one of the first countries to recover one of the 14 elusive Buddha statues stolen from Nnda nearly 60 years ago."

英国艺术、遗产和旅游大臣迈克尔•埃利斯(Michael Ellis)表示:“在庆祝印度独立日之际,我很荣幸宣布英国文化外交的最新行动。”由于伦敦警察厅艺术与古董组的工作,我们成为第一批找到近60年前那烂陀失窃的14尊佛像之一的国家。”

"This underlines how law enforcement and the London art market are working hand in hand to deliver positive cultural diplomacy to the world".

“这突显出执法部门和伦敦艺术市场正在携手努力,向世界传递积极的文化外交”。
