Artefacts back from France on displayStaff Correspondent

A seven-day display of 185 artefacts, including those returned from the Guimet Museum in France, began at the National Museum Monday.

Corrected The exhibition will be open to the public from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm everyday. Cultural affairs adviser Rasheda K Choudhury inaugurated the show.

"The exhibition will include the 42 artefacts sent to France as well as the 143 relics whose shipment was cancelled before the exhibition at the Guimet Museum," cultural affairs secretary Sharful Alam earlier told

"The show will allow people to view the valuable relics directly and there will not be any entry fee," the secretary added. A consignment of 42 artefacts returned home from France on Feb 23 after being exhibited at the Guimet.

A second consignment of 143 cultural artefacts were packed ready for dispatch to Paris on Dec 21 but the government halted the shipment after two rare Vishnu statues went missing at Zia International Airport.
