Two women sit and gaze at the cavity where the largest of the Buddhas of Bamyan statues, known to locals as the "Father Buddha," used to stand, June 16, 2012. The monumental statues were built in A.D. 507 and 554 and were the largest statues of a standing Buddha on Earth until the Taliban dynamited them in 2001.
