Archaeologists in Korea had unearthed a 1,300-year-old giant stone statue of Buddha:
The 5.6-metre (18-feet) tall sculpture was discovered, face down and buried in the ground. Archaeologists worried that the face had been destroyed when the 70-ton statue fell over hundreds of years ago. However, after careful excavation, specialists found that the Buddha’s nose missed a rock bed by only 5 centimetres (2 inches), likely saving it.
“It was miracle that the Buddha’s face was saved by only five centimetres,” Venerable Jigwan, administrative head of the Jogye Order said.
