Nice, eh?

The photo doesn't do much justice to the real thing which is quite tall.

Beautiful pics Huseng!

wow very beautiful! I got an idea of how large the statue is by comparing to the surrounding things.

thanks for sharing!

Hehe, Qingde gets 'em every time!

(The Guanyin statue is nearly as big as the fruit bats and moths that populate the mountainside ...)
