- Oct 04, 2018 -

There are countless sculptures in the world, most of which are exquisite, charming, unique, and bring us different experiences. In the sculpture, the figure sculpture is the most social and cultural atmosphere of popular art, like the South China Sea Guanyin statue. Some places will use sculpture to commemorate the ancestors, to commemorate his great achievements, the statue will tell us a lot of things, so that more people understand him, let him survive forever. But sculptures in some places are so weird that today we're going to look at the three weirdest sculptures in the world.


There are two of the three statues in China and one in Japan. One of the two statues in China is the Central Plains Buddha of the Buddhist temple in Lushan Mountain, Henan. Backed by the Buddha Mountain, facing the Buddha spring river. This Buddha is 208 meters tall, 108 meters tall, 20 meters tall Lotus Block, 25 meters tall Diamond Block, 55 meters tall Xumi Block, after more than 10 years of construction, is the world's largest Buddhist statue. In order to keep this statue from rusting, 108 kilograms of gold were added to its original construction. In the evening, the Golden Buddha, 208 meters tall, will feel very uncomfortable in the mountains.


Another "weird" statue in China is the bronze statue of the Tibetan Buddhist statue of Mount Jiuhua in Anhui. The main body of the statue is 99 meters high, and the whole bronze statue, together with its base, is 155 meters high. It is one of the tallest Buddhist statues in the world at present. The Tibetan Buddhist Bodhisattva is a monk, the right hand holding a tin stick, and the left hand holding mani beads. Facing the northwest side, it is dignified and kind to show "all sentient beings, and peace and prosperity". The bronze statue uses more than 1000 tons of copper and covers an area of 18 mu. It has been 20 years or so since the preparation and opening up to the public. The most strange thing about this Buddha is that it will form a unique phenomenon of "Buddha light".


Sendai Avalokitesvara is located in Japan, this Avalokitesvara is 100 meters above ground, 21 meters below ground, the inside of this Avalokitesvara is worshipable, standing at the top of the view window can have a bird's eye view of Sendai interception and the Pacific Ocean. The original meaning of the statue was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Sendai. The 21m underground meant that Japan could flourish in the 21st century. But the statue could be seen from all sides of the city. It felt like being stared at by the statue, especially at night. The white and huge statue looks even more gloomy at night.


Comments on the sculptures are good and bad, and many netizens say they can be a local feature and boost tourism. But there are also some netizens that do not have to do so much to build such a large statue, it would be too extravagant and wasteful to do so. I don't know how you see it.
