The statue of Bronze Bodhisattva in Longxing Temple, Zhengding, and the statue of Bronze Buddhism in Northern Song Dynasty, China. In the Dabei Cabinet of Longxing Temple, Zhengding, Hebei Province. The temple, also known as the Great Buddha Temple, is derived from the great pessimistic sound and image in the temple. In July of the fourth year of Kaibao in the Northern Song Dynasty (971), when Taizu of the Song Dynasty was stationed in Zhengzheng, the bronze statues of Dabei Temple in the west of the city were destroyed first in Qidan and then in Xiande in the later Zhou Dynasty, and the bronze statues of Dabei Bodhisattva were cast in the temple and the temple buildings were expanded accordingly. The bronze statue of Dabei Bodhisattva stands in the Dabei Cabinet, with a height of more than 22 meters, and a 2.2-meter-high stone throne under it. It is second only to the Qiangba Buddha statue of Zashrunbu Temple in Tibet, and is one of the highest existing bronze statues in China. The Great Pessimism Bodhisattva, also known as the Thousand-Hand and Thousand-Eye Guanyin, has 42 arms around the body and in front of the chest. According to a detailed record of the casting process of the Song stele in the temple, it can be seen that 42 arms were cast in copper and carved in wood in the Song Dynasty, but now only when the arms of the chest and palm are copper, 40 arms on both sides of the body have been replaced by wood in the Qing Dynasty. The statue is slender, slender and long, proportionally symmetrical, with smooth clothes lines. It is especially outstanding below the waist and is full of Song Dynasty art style. There are exquisite carvings such as kabuki, flying sky and Panlong on the pillars of Shangfang, doors and compartments of Xumi Seat. People like me who never shoot Buddha statues can't help taking a few pictures. It's really spectacular.

It achieves the artistic effect of looking forward and respecting. The Great Buddha was first cast in Kaibao in the Northern Song Dynasty (971), with 3000 craftsmen participating in the casting. Because the statue of Buddha is super high, so the project of continuous casting from bottom to top in seven sections is huge.
