Giant Buddha, Leshan, China * Arielle Gabriel writes of her financial disaster and prayers as a Buddhist in The Goddess of Mercy & The Dept of Miracles, a book of disasters and miracles, as a mystic in a world of moneyminded Hong Kong ex-pats *

Begun in the year 713 in the Tang Dynasty, and finished in the year 803, the statue took people more than 90 years to carve. During these years, thousands of workers had expended their efforts and wisdom on the project. It is carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in the southern part of Sichuan province in China, near the city of Leshan.
