Nobody knows when, by whom or what purpose these ware carved, however ,legend says that these ware made by the artist from Korea over 1,000 years ago. The most famous one among them is this head of Buddha which felt from the original 3m statue and it is guessed that somebody picked it up and placed it on to the stone base where it is now can be seen.
Beautiful long crescent semi-closed eyes, elegant eyebrows, gracefully closed mouth, plump cheeks are all mysterious qualities of this depiction of Buddha.
