Very funny. But come to think about it, very sad, too. At least, we should be thankful this statue did not disappear like those in Afghanistan.

Could you given us more details about this statue?

This piece is new. Normally worshipper do add in new one in the temple as offering. With trained eye and local knowledge then you can see the difference. The head would have long gone if it is one of the ancient piece. The new one are made of cement cast and not carved out from a solid rock. It could be dropped off due to poor workmenship and weather. Didn't see any sign of hacking. You see many piece like that and some kind soul will put it nearer to where it belong. You may wondering why they don't repair. There are 400 caves and 400,000 Buddha images in this temple! Do see old one without head...

I see better now. With so many caves and images, you have a lot of pictures to take and a lot of informations to give us. I am sure I am not the only one who will be waiting for your photos and knowledge.
