Photographer's Note

A giant Buddha, with a height of 71 meters, this Leshan Great Buddha impresses: toes measuring 8.5 meters and ears of 7 meters symbolizing Wisdom.
Venerable Buddha carved in the cliff 1200 years ago.
A gigantic Buddha to master the tumultuous course of the waters at the confluence of 3 rivers that he dominates, located just in front of him.
To avoid the erosion effect of this gigantic sculpture, a drainage system was created to channel the runoff mainly at the level of its head and its monumental cap.
