Gold Jade Buddha

The Gold Jade Buddha of Guanyin (Goddess of Mercy) in Sanya (population 460,000), South China’s Hainan Province, was officially listed as the world’s first Buddha statue in the Record Book of Shanghai Grand World Guinness in December 1998. The 3.8-meter statue is made of more than 100 kilograms of gold, and over 120 carats of diamonds from South Africa, in addition to several thousand other gemstones, including rubies, emeralds, pearls and coral.

The statue, the fruit of the toil of artists from Shenzhen Royal Jewellery Art Corporation Ltd. In Guangdong Province, consists of four parts: gold statue, aureole, the radiant light around the head of the statue; lotus flower base; and sandalwood body seat. The statue, completely hand-made, is special for its extravagant and delicate traditional Chinese fine gold craftsmanship.

A panel of 11 specialists from the China Buddhism Association, China Gemstone Association, the Forbidden City and other related departments spoke highly of the statue, saying it is a “precious piece of work.” The moulding of the statue is a sign of a prosperous era, since most of the famous Buddha statues were produced in times of peace and prosperity.
