Talking about Fo Guang Shan in Kaohsiung, I think most people are familiar with it, but not everybody knows about Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum. I don’t know the Buddha Museum before I visited it this time either.
Wait! Don’t tell me I am the only one who doesn’t know the Buddha Museum!
The Buddha Museum covers a very wide area and it is difficult to introduce it once, so I will only show you some artworks and statues outdoor today. The most impressive one is the big pumpkin made by copper which is entitled “Harvest“. This artwork was created by the artist Bai Tsang Yi. The original art piece is exhibited in the hall. The enlarged version of the artwork is displayed outdoor and attracts a lot of attention. The texture on the pumpkin is carved delicately. The rounded shape represents full union and perfection. Vegetable represents the blessing of harvest every year.
The photo I took shows the backlighting silhouette. The rounded pumpkin is very different from the shape of towers in the environment, forming a strong contrast.
On the way to the main building, I didn’t walk the path most people follow. So I have the chance to discover a beautiful garden with many animal sculptures behind the row of towers. It gives me the joy of surprise.
There are also some buildings that seem to be not open to the public. I guess it is probably where the buddhas cultivate themselves and pray?
Although the animal statues are not famous artwork, they are very elaborate in terms of the shape or the details of the statue. Look at the feathers on this chicken, the textures of the feathers are very clear and meticulous. The elephant’s nose is also very delicate. You can even see the muscle on the elephant’s body.
Is that chicken or Phasianus colchicus? It makes me think of Phoenix. So beautiful!!
If you visit the Buddha Museum, don’t forget to visit this beautiful garden and enjoy those artistic statues.
