it is reported that the most important exhibit of this exhibition, the 720 kg Buddha statue of Sakyamuni, sits on the lotus terrace with lowered eyes and slightly leaning forward. In listening and meditating, the audience slowly explores Dazu stone carvings, which have experienced a thousand years of discovery and inheritance. The statue of Avalokitesvara is placed in the middle of the exhibition hall. It forms a group of stone carvings with more than 20 key exhibits. Dazu stone carvings show the style of “China Guanyin statue exhibition hall”. In addition, the largest and most outstanding incense burner in Dazu stone carvings also appeared in the exhibition. This incense burner was carved in the Ming Dynasty, with a height of 101 cm and a weight of nearly 500 kg. It is divided into five layers from bottom to top. Each layer has different shapes and patterns, but the whole body is hollowed out and the carving is extremely exquisite. It can be said that it is the masterpiece of Dazu in the Ming Dynasty.
