Photographer's Note


Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (Man Fat Tsz) is a Buddhist temple in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. It is not an actual monastery as there are no resident monks and is managed by laypersons. It was built by Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman who dedicated the last years of his life to constructing an elaborate temple containing nearly 13,000 statues of Buddha.

This is one of the statues alongside the stairway leading up to the monastery.


The pensive pose of the statue strangely reminds me of something rather more mundane. These days you'd expect a mobile phone whenever you see someone in this pose. Sad times...
