Photograph of miscellaneous sculptures and fragments from Kichang, Singhbhum District, taken by Joseph David Beglar in 1874-76. In the report of his tours of 1874-75 and 1875-76, Beglar wrote, "Kichang is a large village near the junction of the Kairabandhana and Kantakara Rivers; the ruins are situated all round it, but chiefly at the eastern end, just outside the village...[There] are several other little mounds and statues, some of these have a certain resemblance to Buddhist sculpture, but nevertheless are Brahmanical...Most of the sculpture is broken; some are large life-size, others small, but the execution is excellent, and superior to a great deal of what I have seen elsewhere."
