Chinese Buddha

In contrast to our own Buddha, this is how a Chinese Buddha looks like. I shot this photo of the bronze Tian Tan Buddha in Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, Hongkong. It is 112 feet tall and weights 250 metric tons. Its construction was completed in 1993.

As you can see, this Buddha also wears a look of serenity but somehow it is not as blissful as ours.
