black & white photographs taken by Ursula Graham Bower between 1937 and 1946

caption: Heorangduing, Namkiabuing's son, sitting on stone elephant. This ancient and rudely carved stone figure was formerly, it is said, in much better preservation, but has been weathered. A somewhat similar stone figure of a cow or bull is said to have stood by the Northern path of Asalu, some fifty years ago, but was broken up by "Kuki sepoys". Certainly the fragments which now remain show little resemblance to a statue.
