Guyang Cave, Longmen Grottoes Baycroft, Anne


The Guyang cave is the oldest cave at Longmen, dating from around 478 in the Northern Wei dynasty. The central image is Sakyamuni Buddha flanked by bodhisattvas. There are also numerous inscriptions and calligaphy within the cave, representing the style of the time. The video here pans from the right to center to left side of the cave's interior.
