Photographer's Note

"Arjuna's Penance", a massive bas-relief monolith in Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram),is also known as "The Descent of the Ganges" because there are conflicting theories as to which story from the Mahabarata is depicted here. It was created in the 7th century, and is 96 feet long and 43 feet high overall.
