Travels of other statues

It is documented that the colonial government gave permission to Chulalongkorn, King of Siam (Rama V, reign 1868-1910), to take two statues from Singosari when he visited the site in 1896. One is known to be a beautiful Ganesha that, like the Leiden one, sits on a row of skulls. It is taller than the Leiden one (172 cm) and is now in the Bangkok National Museum of Thailand.

The other statue has not been described and remains unidentified. At the same time the King of Siam also took quite a lot of pieces from Borobudur, including a large statue of a lion, and some relief pieces from Prambanan.
