Summary

The carbon and clay cores of two sculptures were submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating. A bronze Brahmanic sculpture of Vishnu was purportedly made during the Sukhothai era in Thailand. These pieces are noted to have been produced from the 1300s until the first quarter of the 1500s. A bronze sitting Buddha from Bhutan was supposedly cast during the 1400s. Radiocarbon dating of samples from both statues was completed to verify the dates.
