This statue of Vairocana Buddha was built as China’s response to the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas by the Taliban in March of 2001.  The Bamiyan Buddhas were one of the largest rock statues ever built in the ancient world.
However, the good news is that after 6 years, China was able to at least construct what is now the tallest statue in the world!
If you pay close attention to the photo, even the tallest people don’t even reach past the toe of the Buddha!  It is measured to be about 420 ft. tall!
For more info, you can always check the wikipedia article on this statue of Vairocana (known as the Spring Temple Buddha), and also more about the Bamiyan Buddhas.
