CHINA - Longmen Grottoes

"The grottoes and niches of Longmen contain the largest and most impressive collection of Chinese art of the late Northern Wei and Tang Dynasties (316-907). These works, entirely devoted to the Buddhist religion, represent the high point of Chinese stone carving." -

Longmen Grottoes in Luoyang City houses over 2,100 Buddhist niches,
more than 100,000 sculptures, about 3,600 inscriptions and 40 Buddhist pagodas.

Thank you so much Jun for this wonderful postcard! =)
And I so much like the stamps!
