The artist Pascal Convert has confronted himself with the cliff of Bamiyan, which two immense Buddhas were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001. From several thousand of 3D scans and photographic surveys made with a cutting-edge scientific device, he creates a monumental work forming the most precise view of the 1800 meter long cliff and the hundreds of sanctuary caves that compose it.
The book offers a new perception of this panorama which is revealed in fragments, in all its physicality, over the pages, and testifies to the richness of this historic site which is set to disappear, victim of erosion mechanisms.
Several historical, critical and literary essays (in French) recount the exceptional nature of its story and shed light on the many facets of this documentary, artistic and spiritual work.
