Descriptions of Stone Fragments (Deskripsi Fragment Batu di Candi Borobudur)

This series contains descriptions and sketches of stone fragments from in and around the Borobudur temple. Missing stones are blocks and fragments that are detached or have fallen from the structure of the temple. Many of them were found on the surface around the temple site- buried beneath the soil or used as foundations for house dwellings- staircases or floors- or for mortar for padi- among other purposes. Some have been found underground during routine archaeological excavations- and many more sculptured fragments have been discovered around the temple complex. The stones were dislocated from their original places by natural or anthropogenic causes. The process of matching the missing stones entailed two major activities: first- the general classification of all the missing stones and stone fragments and- second- the matching up of certain specific types of missing stones- for example- the broken Buddha heads and the crowns of antefixes. The project of collecting the missing stones was initiated in 1970–71 and continued up to 1973–74. As many as 2-234 blocks were collected and categorized- and 739 blocks successfully relocated to their original places.
