Reclining Buddha, YU FO SI, Shanghai

Earlier, I did mentioned the monk who had helped in establishing the temple location first by leaving two of his five Buddha figures collection at Shanghai, where one was the beautifully crafted White Jade Buddha and the other statue is actually a Reclining Buddha. Unlike the White Jade Buddha, the Reclining Buddha at YUFOSI as compare, is NOT that sizable in both form and size. The placement of this statue is located at another section, it is located at the back portion, just above the crowded souvenir shops area, where there is a staircase leading you to upstairs. The mid-size Jade Buddha statue is actually cased inside a glass box. Again, photographing of the Buddha is also prohibited here, but I had managed to overcame the barrier by sweet talking to some ladies who took charge here at duties. This original jade recliningreclining Buddha measures barely 2 feet long only. I was told it was also crafted from a single piece of jade but the coloring of the jade is leaning towards with significant yellowish tint. Here I can only show you the facial section as the other full frame picture has a lot of reflection from the cased glass, which totally spoilt my mood after leaving the temple and realizing the mistake while I was already in the cab. &#($U@($(!!
