** LARGEST STONE BUDDHA IN THE WORLD **

The Leshan Giant Buddha was built during the Tang Dynasty. It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in the southern part of Sichuan province in China, near the city of Leshan. The stone sculpture faces Mount Emei, with the rivers flowing below his feet. It is the largest stone Buddha in the world.
...
At 71 metres (233 feet) tall, the statue depicts a seated Maitreya Buddha with his hands resting on his knees. His shoulders are 28 metres wide and his smallest toenail is large enough to easily accommodate a seated person. There is a local saying: "The mountain is a Buddha and the Buddha is a mountain". This is partially because the mountain range in which the Leshan Giant Buddha is located is thought to be shaped like a slumbering Buddha when seen from the river, with the Leshan Giant Buddha as its heart.

Amen! I'll take the living one any day over one carved by hands.

Being a Christian, my faith is also with Jesus, Kevin and Penny.  My reason for sharing this is not in reverence of buddha but in the amazing architecutual skills of that time period  (618 – 907 AD).  

Religion shouldn't cirumvent the appreciation of other wonders on God's earth.  Being grounded in God allows me to partake in the history of our world without everything being viewed as an enemy to my faith. 

You can not argue the fact that this is an example of great artistry and amazing abilities for that time period of limited resources, as are other wonders of the world, like the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. 

Appreciation of these archeological tributes and time periods does not negate my love  of God, Jesus or my beliefs for I am mature in my walk. If  I ever have the financial ability to travel the world, I would not pass up an opportunity to see everything I could of what man and earth has to share of their history for through my eyes, God is in EVERYTHING.

Agreed, for me though I look at it with sadness. Sadness for the countless hours, lives and resources expended in a memorial to a dead god. Sad for the countless people who have died needlessly in the name of some dead religion. Sad for the people, even today, that could live better lives were it not for time and effort expended on such tom foolery.

Is it beautiful? Yes. Is it extraordinary? Yes. Is it a waste? Yes.

I don't believe in Buddas, but I am like Ponee it is very interesting and creative to have built something like that. Just a page in history of places out there, we didn't know about!

Maybe not nice words below, but not mine:

YOU SHALL make for yourselves no idols nor shall you erect a graven image, pillar, or obelisk, nor shall you place any figured stone in your land to which or on which to bow down; for I am the Lord your God.  (Le 26:1 AMP)

Neither shall you bring an abomination (an idol) into your house, lest you become an accursed thing like it; but you shall utterly detest and abhor it, for it is an accursed thing. (Dt 7:26 AMP)

Cursed is the man who makes a graven or molten image, an abomination to the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret. All the people shall answer, Amen. (Dt 27:15 AMP)

Behold, you [idols] are nothing, and your work is nothing! The worshiper who chooses you is an abomination [extremely disgusting and shamefully vile in God’s sight].(Is 41:24 AMP)

What profit is the graven image when its maker has formed it? It is only a molten image and a teacher of lies. For the maker trusts in his own creations [as his gods] when he makes dumb idols. Woe to him who says to the wooden image, Awake! and to the dumb stone, Arise, teach! [Yet, it cannot, for] behold, it is laid over with gold and silver and there is no breath at all inside it! (Hab 2:18–19 AMP)
