Big Buddha

In another entry for the Hong Kong LEGO contest, Chiukeung built a microscale version of Hong Kong, including the Tian Tan Buddha. This bronze statue, built during the 1990s, stands (well, sits) 34 meters high and weighs 250 metric tons. One of the halls beneath the statue holds a relic of Gautama Buddha, purported to contain some of his cremated remains.
