Abbott is in India to meet Modi's government and sign a deal to supply uranium nuclear fuel to the energy-hungry country. The National Gallery of Australia (NGA) bought a bronze sculpture of a dancing Shiva for $5 million in 2008 from New York art and antiquities dealer Subhash Kapoor. A stone sculpture of the Hindu god Ardhanariswara also linked to Kapoor ended up in the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. The Shiva, which dates back to the 11th or 12th century, and the Ardhanariswara were removed from display earlier this year amid allegations they were stolen from temples in southern India.
