The Great Buddha of Kamakura . . 鎌倉大仏 Extract from Wikipedia "The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amitābha Buddha located at the Kōtoku-in Temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The bronze statue probably dates from 1252, in the Kamakura period, according to temple records. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall and weighs approximately 93 tons. The statue is hollow, and visitors can view the interior. Since the last hall was washed away in 1498, the Great Buddha has stood in the open air." The strange things on its back are meant to be windows. Not really fancy, but my statue isn't hollow unfortunately :D A picture of the real thing, taken by my girlfriend, when we visited it in September 2009. I had this prototype in black lying around for quite some time, but just today I received the last pieces in sand-green (what a rare colour!) and decided to finish it at once. This is my first ever attempt at a sculptural MOC, and it really wasn't easy. I'm quite pleased with the result though. I hope you like it as well! It isn't really minifig-scale, it probably would be twice as tall in minifig-scale, and that would be impossible for me to do (did I mention sand-green is a rare colour?). I plan to build the surroundings one day, but not really soon... [This has no religious meaning to me. I just enjoy the statue as such. I am fascinated by Japan and this is one of its most famous landmarks.] Feel free to comment ;)
