Travel Theme: Golden (Buddha)

We passed by this Buddha when we traveled to the Jiulong Group of Waterfalls in China two years ago.

The Buddha was sited at the top of the hill.

After climbing a lot of steps, we we finally reached the top of the hill, and here it was the golden Buddha smiling peacefully and kindly on us.DSCF2877A

He seems to be very relaxed, the posture on the right hand may be symbolic of ┬ásomething which I don’t understand and he has a string of beads on the left hand.

He has long ears which to Chinese symbolize longevity.

No sure why he has a big belly – he must be well fed, not sure whether this is healthy though.

There was sort of an awakening radiance when we were looking at the Buddha!
