The Maijishan Grottoes

Maijishan Grottoes

Seven thousand Buddhist sculptures grace the caves and a sheer rock cliff face of the Maijishan Grottoes in Gansu Province, China. The work on these carvings took hundreds of years, peaking around 500AD, but continued until the beginning of the 20th century. Some are carved out of the cliff itself, some are made of clay, and some rock sculptures have been brought in from elsewhere. See lots of photographs of this amazing landmark from various vantage points at Kuriositas. Link -via the Presurfer
