Photographer's Note

Made of bronze and standing at 88 m and weighing 700 tonnes, this Great Buddha statue at Lingshan Mountain in Wuxi is the tallest Buddha statue in China (biggest open air Buddha statue in the world). If the lotus flower pedestal is included, the total height is 100 m.

The giant statue overlooks the Tai Lake (Taihu Lake).
