Golden Buddha

Golden Buddha
My parent first took us to New York City in 1979, then we visited it again in 1988. In 1988, we stayed in NYC for two months so we got to know the city quite well.

My mom is a Buddhist and this is in the temple that she went to back in 1988. When we came across the place again in 2009, she was elated. We went in to take a look and saw this impressive gilded carving of a religious story.

Look closely and you'll see many characters and animals and trees etc. My hand was shaky at the time, so it's not a very good photo.
