Photographer's Note

This is a 30m tall Kannon (Buddhist diety of mercy) carved in a cliff in the Nihon-ji temple complex. It reminds me of the Afghanistan figures that were destroyed by the Taliban. However this figure is not that old. It was carved out of the stone in the 1960s.

I used the contrast mask technique to brighten the portions of the figure that were in shadows.
