Bhaisajyaguru Buddha

This stone Bhaisajyaguru Buddha (or healing Buddha), from the unified Silla period (9th century), now resides in the National Museum of Korea.

it is very much like or similar to the giant, outdoor, buddha at Kamakura, Japan. They look like the same model was used.

This is a beauty. I noted your cameras. I used to use the same Canon 850 IS you mention and now I use a Panasonic Lumix FZ18, so we seem to have followed a similar path. And I lived in Oz for 6 years!

Thanks Abraham and Jilly
On the cameras, I actually did it the other way around. I had the Lumix first and then bought the little canon, primarily to be able to stick in my pocket on walks or throe in my bag on business trips. While I am really happy with the Lumix, it is a little too bulky to have with me all the time.
