Photograph of some sculptures displayed in the entrance to the Bihar museum taken by Sir Benjamin Simpson in the 1870s. The photograph is part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections: Indian Museum Series. The sculptures are identified as "pillars, dacavatara and navagraha slabs and Buddhistic statues." A note written by Bloch concerning the Bihar museum states that, "The sculptures photographed while exhibited in the Bihar Museum were collected from various places in Bihar, and are now in the Indian Museum. A paper by Mr Broadley, dealing with this collection, was published in Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, vol. XLI, part I, 1872, pp. 209-311."
