p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sleeping or Reclining Buddha - Nanzoin Temple, Kyushu, Japan


Here is an image of Sleeping or Reclining Buddha taken at the Nanzoin Temple, located in the town of Sasaguri, Kyushu, Japan. It is a composite of 5 images taken hand held and then stitched in PS6 and then cropped 4:1 ratio. It was taken late March, 2013.

There are some people standing near the feet of the image to give an idea of the scale. From what I read on the net, it is the largest bronze statue in the world at 41 meters (133 ft) in length and 11 meters (36 ft) in height.

I hope you enjoy it. Your comments and criticism are very welcome. Thank you for looking.

Sure glad you have the people in the picture, and they are easily missed. Very clean image, thanks for sharing.

AMagi,
This is a fine image of a pretty spectacular interpretation of Buddha.
The Reclining Buddha I saw in Ayutaya, Thailand (many years ago) wasn't this big- and it had been neglected for many years when I was there.
This one here has obviously been cared for.

That's an awesome picture. I would love to see that one day. Not a sleeping Buddha, this is the classic reclining pose, which is supposed to be the Buddha just before death.
