The story of Indian art and sculpture dates back to the Indus valley civilization of the 2nd and 3rd millennium BC. These articles indicate the level of achievement that Indian art had attained in those days.
The original painting by Zhang Zeduan (张择端). In the 5.28-meter long picture, there are 814 humans, 28 boats, 60 animals, 30 buildings, 20 vehicles, nine sedan chairs, and 170 trees. Dubbed 'China's Mona Lisa', it is shown for brief periods every few years in the Beijing Palace Museum.
The highest statue to have been found until this moment in the San Agustin (Los Idolos) surroundings. It represents the goddess of the moon and measures about 7 meters (only from the soil that is)!. Of course I quickly installed myself alongside this important symbol of female fertility.
