Weekly Photo Challenge: Extraordinary ( Buddha)

This is no ordinary Buddha but a buddha housed in the Yunggang Grotto, DaTong.

The cave was dark and this may be clearest picture I have ever taken there.DSCF2373

You may ask why there are holes on the buddha’s body.

What I understand is that the buddha originally has a colored coating or plaster on his body, which was held up by pegs embedded in the body but has since fallen off.
