This Buddah Was built for the Shonfa Templelocated northeast of Peking, by the order of Emperor Hui-Tsung1101-1125
Its builder was Chon-Ha-Chin, most noted of ancient Buddah makers.The temple was looted by a rebel general who took the statue as part of his loot and sent it to New York to be sold.....The statue came to the notice of two friends of E.L. McIlhenny who purchased it and sent it to him as a gift in 1936.

Buddah SpeaksPeacefully I restUpon this lagoon's bankas pale as green bamboosway above my throne.Clouds of blossomssoften the sifted lightfalling golden and mistyThrough the boughs above.Long days of travelbrought me from my home,yet I have knownno hour of calmer rest.My thoughts arelike the swaying bamboos' crestwaved to and froabove the rippling streamclear and blueas from a glorious dream.E.L.McIlhenny
