The Modi government is known for bringing precious antique possessions back to India. This is yet another time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi bags the opportunity to bring home 157 artifacts and antiquities handed over to India by the US during his visit. The antiquities largely belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE and historic antiquities such as the anthropomorphic copper object of 2000 BC or the terracotta vase from the 2nd CE.

Some 45 antiquities belong to Before Common Era. Amongst many are a diverse set of items ranging from the one-and-a-half meter bas relief panel of Revanta in sandstone of the 10th CE to the 8.5 cm tall, exquisite bronze Nataraja from the 12th CE. Many of these also antiquities signify Hinduism. PM Modi and President Joe Biden seem extremely happy with this cultural exchange and further promise to strengthen efforts to eradicate theft, illegal trafficking, and trade of cultural objects.
