This sculpture belongs to Mahākāśyapa, one of the Buddha’s 10 Great Disciples. In Buddhist scriptures, this disciple will become a Buddha. With his great wisdom, he is also known as guangmingrulai.
Although we cannot see Mahākāśyapa’s body light, the natural lighting exudes from this work. We can only imagine the delicate depictions and magnificent weathering of the original work. This light symbolises the perpetual wisdom found in Buddhism.
