Oldest and largest four-handed Buddha statue recognised in Vietnam

2 Comments


The four-handed Buddha statue in the Linh Son Pagoda of the An Giang Province in Vietnam receives recognition for being the largest and oldest of its kind, dating to between the 2nd and 6th century. The statue was discovered almost a hundred years ago in Oc Eo. It looks like the statue has been painted on recently, as the paint would certainly have not lasted 14 centuries!
