The Austrian Government has returned to Nepal a 400-year-old mask of Buddha that had found its way to a museum in Vienna.
Made of bronze and copper, the mask disappeared from an office in Lalitpur district, just south of Kathmandu, two years ago.
Three other small statues that were taken with the mask have not yet been found.
The Austrian ambassador to Nepal, Jutta Stefan-Bastl, formally handed over the Dipankar Buddha mask to the Nepalese Government on Friday.
