the face is not that important right?
I'm looking at the hand gesture..
the fingers...
focused positive energy
which expells bad fluids
'warding off the evil'

a very good choice of colours and perspective by the way
adds dignity to the statue
and it looks like an very old one...is it really?

this is a very small question
with a very big answer .
i don't really know , i haven't read what was
all about this this statue .
i know about the story though .
but i will look over to see something more specific
about this peculiar statue .
this was from Kyoto btw ,
it's in a temple that i don't remember the name and,
i never came back .
yep,i know , huge impression it must had on me .

but truth be told , i like in there ,
one of my favorite spots in kyoto is the hirano temple
and i was there also only once so ,
go figure that right ?

who knows .. .

Might I ask, where in Japan is this statue located? For I would love to visit it myself.

I visited Great Buddah and went inside one of them. I loved it so much, I want to see more! Maybe I can take a few weeks vacationa and visit Kyoto. Would I have to fly or does the Shinkansen go that far?

shinkansen do the work ,
but will probably cost you something like
12.000 just to get there .
there is no Airport in kyoto btw or even nearby .
but the travel is very pleasant : )

I was looking at prices for the Shinkansen and its actually not a bad price at all. I want to ride it once before I leave here anyway. :) Ill be planning a trip.

I also have a question. This year I went to SakuraGicho COSMO WORLD for New Years and Im not sure what to do this year. Do you have any ideas or recommendations?

I really like this. The composition and lighting, and the use of negative space is wonderful. I love the streaks on the statue's surface, like it's an eternally unchanging thing through storms and clear skies. My favorite part is how you can't see the Bodhisattva's face entirely, giving this air of mystery that's a little bit haunting.

Impressive statue. I'm sure my mom would love to see them in Japan, because she's a Buddhist. :D She went to Japan a long time ago, when she was a little girl.
