Why is there a label tied around the Buddha?
All Farang Buddhas are imported under licence from Thailand. It is illegal to export Buddhas from Thailand without such licencing - we are one of the few retailers in the UK (we are not actually specifically aware of anybody else who has obtained the appropriate licenses), who have managed to obtain Buddha licences during 2013. This label is issued by the Department of Fine Arts in the Ministry of Culture in Thailand and authorises the export of this buddha. The tag carries the department's metal seal. The label can be easily removed from the Buddha. This strict licencing is designed to protect Thailand's cultural heritage and also protects against the illegal export of Thai antiques.
