Archaelogical society of India markings

I took this photograph for two reasons.

One is that I learned about how the ASI (Archeological Survey of India) marks its findings.  You just have to learn the code.
In this case, "ABN" means Abhaneri, the location.
And 24 is the number they mark on anything that represents the Hindu god Vishnu.

The other reason I took the photo is that the statue reminded me of Donatello's David
Only slightly more clothes and a different hat.
