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.

RADIOCARBON DATES ON SAMPLES FROM THE CARBON AND CLAY CORES OF A BUDDHA STATUE AND ASSOCIATED NAGA THRONE, SRI VIJAYA PERIOD STATUARY (2009)
A large, bronze Thai sculpture of a Buddha and Naga, thought to be from the Sri Vijaya Empire in southern Thailand contained carbon and clay cores, which yielded sufficient carbon for radiocarbon dating. This statuary, cast in two pieces, is reputed to be from the Sri Vijaya Empire in the late 12th to mid 13th century. Radiocarbon dating of samples from both portions of this statuary was completed to verify the dates.
