The complex of Buddhist cave temples at Xiangtangshan, “Mountain of Echoing Halls,” is a central achievement of the Northern Qi period.
This crouching monster with bent knees and hands on knees is framed between two overhanging moldings, top and bottom. Likely from the cave-temple complex at Xiangtangshan, it originally would have been placed below some wall niches on the perimeter.
