Default To jean113: wood or stone?

Thank you Jean,
I'm not really sure of the material of the ceilings but I would suppose they are made of the same stone as everything else here. I just found an interesting information that all these paintings, including the hundreds of painted statues, are repaired and restored every 12 years. I had been puzzled by the fact that more recent photos, including some on TE, are so much brighter. I couldn't recognize anything and was wondering if I could possibly have missed large parts of the temple. Obviously I saw everything, but at least the area in this photo was clearly getting ready for its regular restoration.
