Monday marks the World Heritage Day. Chinese experts started a restoration project to save a rock carving statue in Southwest China on this special day. After three years of experiments, a special fibre is chosen as the perfect element to connect the fallen hands of the 1,000 armed Goddess of Mercy.


These are the broken hands that have fallen from the thousand armed Bodhasattva, one of the 4,600 rock carving statues in Dazu county near Chongqing Municipality.

After three years of experiments with 7 materials, a fibre element is confirmed as the best one to reunite the fallen hands to their owner.

The restoration will be completed in an eight step process, starting with cleaning the dust.
