buddha's hand

he is enormous. the fingers picutred are about the size of an adult human.
i am a not a buddhist (at least not formally) but I can't resist admiring the purity of this religion - belief in existense of Buddha is not that important to achieving the same state of enlightment...

the picture is from Nara, Japan, with a bronse Buddha which was the biggest in the world for centuries. buddhist or not, it gets you on a philosopical page...

i'll be away for a couple of weeks, visiting Milano and Prague. hope to get time for new pictures ;)
