Survey of Asian Art with SCAD is such an enjoyable class. I am thrilled that I took it over again. Our field trip for the quarter consists of a trip to Hong Kong’s Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. Below are images from the adventure, which I hope you would enjoy as I much as I did taking them.
The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (Man Fat Tsz), located Po Fook Hill at Pai Tau Village, Shatin in the New Territories is one of Hong Kong’s most famous Buddhist temples and popular tourist attractions. The temple was founded in 1949 by the Reverend Yuet Kai and completed in 1957. (source)
The body encased in class in the center of the altar is the embalmed body of the Monastery’s founder, Yue Kai
