So far, 50,000 statues and 100,000 inscribed with Chinese characters have been identified. The cliff statues are large in size, well carved and among the best preserved of this form of Chinese cave temple art.

The Dazu Rock Carvings occupy an important position in the history of China's grotto art. They include not only Buddhist figures, but Taoist and Confucian figures, which makes them different from earlier grottoes. The statues have strong national and secular features and depict the daily lives of ancient people.
