It turns out that many Indonesian royal relics are stored in the American Museum

Indonesia has various historical relics that are priceless. Unfortunately, many of these relics were actually taken by foreign countries and kept in their museums.

Quoted from the libby museum a man uploaded a video showing the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, United States, which apparently houses tens or even hundreds of royal relics in Indonesia.

The video uploaded by M Hidayat’s YouTube channel displays a collection of art from the Indonesian royal heritage that existed in the past. In the description on each object, the numbers are written that the collection was made in the 10th century.

One of the major kingdoms in the archipelago is Sriwijaya. Sure enough, a large collection of the Srivijaya kingdom is stored in the museum.

In a corner stored a statue of Ganesha. Underneath the statue is written a statement that the object was found in Kalimantan which is a relic of the Sriwijaya Kingdom made in the mid-9th century.

Apart from relics from the Sriwijaya Kingdom, the Metropolitan Museum of Art also has a collection of Borobudur statues. The statue is even complete with body and head, although not together.

In the sitting Buddha collection is written the description ‘Seated Buddha Amitabha’ originating from Java, Indonesia in the mid-9th century.

Right next to it, there is a statue of the head of Borobudur which is very rare in Indonesia stored neatly in the United States museum. The statue of the head of Borobudur is written ‘Head of a Buddha Indonesia (Java)’. The statue was found in central Java and was made in the 9th century.
