Dazu Stone Carvings

Dazu is famous for its stone carvings with more than 100,000 pieces left over from the Tang
(628-907) and Song (960-1279) dynasties. The well preserved carvings are respresentative of an ancient Chinese art tradition. Because of their location, they were protected from destruction by the Red Army. In 1999 this site was declared a World Heritage Site. Posted by Picasa
