Archaeological find

The island of Java was a melting pot of many influences.I was in the National Museum in Jakarta and I spotted this statue. The insciptions on this statue are based on the nagari script - a script that was used in Northern parts of India and the surrounding lands. I was able to read some text as the alphabets are similar to Devanagari script that is used to write Hindi.
