Three spectacular 6thC Gandharan stucco images of the Buddha from Hadda near Jallalabad in S Afghanistan, made when, according to Xuanzang, Jellalabad was seen as the N gateway to India. All are a little later than the sculptures I posted earlier & even more delicate & refined.

2. Yeah that was very sad

I suppose Buddha would laugh, but it felt tragic.

3. XUAN ZANG: Chinese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film

I think this is the reference here. I posted about the 2016 film concerning his travels.

XUAN ZANG: Chinese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film

I enjoyed the film but some critics panned it because it was a commercial failure.

Great photos. I can see the western influence.
