The mural in one of the caves at the Arjai Grotto is about 20 inches long and 14 inches wide, the Xinhua News Agency reported Tuesday.

One of the monks is on his knees and appears to be praying, said the researcher

There is a special place in hell for people like Moyers. Hope he gets there real soon.

Come think of it I remember seeing Ricardo in old school Hawaii Five-O play Japanese gangster OMG boy what casting
Too bad we can't bring him back.
He had a special "talent" for dealing with Muslims.
Meanwhile William Shatner was in Kingdom of the Spiders (a real classic!) and this. He also starred in T.J. Hooker in the Eighties and went on to star on Boston Legal. In the Seventies Bill tried his hand at music with his unique versions of "Mr. Tamborine Man" and "Rocket Man." In 1986 he made a memorable appearance on Saturday Night Live as himself at a Star Trek convention ("Get a life!!!")
"Guys speaking of Khan Ricardo Montliban he is in ill health last time I hear I just hope we Freepers pay respect to Ricardo when he finally kick it"
When his time comes I hope he's buried in a coffin lined with rich Corinthian leather.
