- Curator's comments
- "The collection of antiquities here described [Stein no. beginning with Har.] was obtained from Badruddin Khan, of Khotan, by Mr H I Harding, HBM's late Vice-Consul, Kashgar, and kindly presented by him on his passage through Kashmir in September, 1923, for inclusion in the Indian Government's Museum of Central-Asian Antiquities, New Delhi. A number of interesting fresco panels, which were also presented by Mr Harding have since been set up by Mr Andrews at the Museum, New Delhi, and will be separately catalogued with other mural paintings. No definite information is available as to the provenance of the antiques here described. But it appears probable that they were brought to Khotan as a result of digging which villagers carried on at some ruins in the desert area covered with tamarisk- cones NE of Domoko. - A. Stein."
