Caged Art

The inside of this cave was an arched room that had been carefully carved out and then heavily plastered. On the plaster they painted pictures but now the pictures are almost gone, faded and covered with smoke. Tourist over the years chipped small pieces off and took them away. Now the steal cage prevents us from going in and we had to take our pictures through the cage.

If you look closely on the outside walls appears to be stone work but it too is plastered and then shaped and painted to look like a stone wall.
