I must confess that I discovered a lot of the Chinese wonders thanks to postcards and to Postcrossing.
This site was one of those wonders.
|Dazu stone carvings|
The Dazu Rock Carvings are a series of Chinese religious sculptures and carvings, dating back as far as the 7th century AD, depicting and influenced by Buddhist, Confucian and Taoist beliefs.
Listed as a World Heritage Site, the Dazu Rock Carvings are made up of 75 protected sites containing some 50,000 statues, with over 100,000 Chinese characters forming inscriptions and epigraphs. - in: wikipedia
