Photograph of some miscellaneous sculptured slabs from Suissa taken by Joseph David Beglar c.1872-73 constituting part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections (Indian Museum Series). The sculptures, being in shade, are not very clearly defined in this print, but are listed by Beglar. "Here, under a bar or bat tree, are collected numerous statues, found, it is said, in the jangal when the place was cleared, but chiefly in a spot 100 yards off, which is, and must long have been, a burial place of the Bhumji or aborigines...The sculptures collected under the tree are Jain and Brahmanical.."
