Photograph of some sculpture slabs taken by Sir Benjamin Simpson in the 1870s. The photograph is part of the Archaeological Survey of India Collections: Indian Museum Series. While the majority of the sculptures in this photograph are of Indian origin the two slabs flanking the doorway in the centre of the picture are Armenian tombstones. A note by Bloch concerning this photograph reads, "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 the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, vol. XLI, part I, 1872, pp. 209-311."
