Large statue

Early last century my grandfather was something of a whizz in brass, and contributed help develop extrusion processes for that metal. Being lucky enough myself to hail from Birmingham, I have enormous respect for people who can do things with metal. So I was very impressed by the sheer engineering involved in making this huge statue of Guru Rinpoche in Bhutan. I’d seen a few pictures before, and this video is a few years old, but I only stumbled across it the other day.

You can watch the video at Youtube – it’s not quite 12 minutes long, or read a little bit more at Bhutan Travel and elsewhere.
