  • Description

    No title. Panning shot of a barren beach. There is a rocky pathway to the right of camera and a horse is seen being lead around the rocks. Camera tilts up to show cliff side. There are carved doorways in the cliff.

    Camera pans across cliffs to show the houses carved into the cliff face. M/S of a various statues - Buddhas? They seem to be carved into the cliffs. More shots of the religious statues. The camera tilts down to show some people standing at the foot of the icons - this gives some idea of the scale of the statues. They are very large. A child plays beside the foot (?) of one of the statues. According to paperwork this bay is in China.

    Note: the original from which this print was struck had already suffered quite bad decomposition - the story is probably unusable.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 524.

    Safety print only.
