Sample text

The use of early photographic equipment and the rapidity of duplication and publication of his photographs rapidly replaced the use of drawings in its descriptive function of objects and landscapes. In this way a perfect likeness of the real image was afforded by photography, and cameras became indispensable for travelers, especially in countries such as Africa and Asia, which up to then were not well known. With their artistic value and mystical fascination, the Bamiyan colossi and the entire valley became a preferred destination for travelers crossing Afghanistan in that period.

It is well cultivated, but there are few trees. Several narrow glens, the channels of streams flowing from the Koh, on the south, fall into this valley; one of them is at Topchi, or Ahinghar, a small fort about half-way from Zohauk. But the largest, which is indeed a valley itself, having numerous terraces of fields on either side of the rivulet, joins that of Bamian nearly opposite the images: this is the Fouladi Vale. The two streams converge in the main valley, and unite near a small fort situated in the fork itself.

About 1830 another English traveler, Charles Masson, who was a real adventurer, crossed the Valley of Bamiyan. 9 Masson’s published report on the two Buddha statues is important for two reasons: first because this was the first time a sketch of the valley with the Buddha niches and caves was published; and second because he described the complex access structure around the colossus by which it was possible to reach to the head of the statues. 10 The idols were cut or hewn into the rock, and were covered with a surface of cement.
