This group of Buddhas is photographed in museums all over the country. In the dark lights of the museum, when you look at these statues for a long time, you feel not only the solemn and illusions of religion, but more of the life and vitality of the real human nature. So I hope this group of works will show more humanity and goodness, not just religious solemnity.
