Background Information:
"At one famous temple in the jungle, among the bas-reliefs we saw that china plates had been cemented into the stone work as part of the design. We were told that finely chased plates of silver worked by Balinese silversmiths were formerly mounted there; but so many had been stolen by tourists, that have now been replaced with china plates that we saw." p.204
