yungang grottoes 08 - window on the outside world

Oct 2009
There's a kind of window and we can see the face of one of those big buddha statues. I had already noticed this in Japan. For exemple, Nara's huge bouddha can see the outside every 31st december when the window is open in front of his face.
I don't know the reason for those holes or windows in front of the face.
Il y a comme une fenêtre et nous pouvons voir le visage de l'une des ces grosses statues de bouddha. J'avais remarqué cela au Japon. par exemple, le boudha gigantesque de Nara peut voir l'extérieur chaque 31 Décembre lorsque l'on ouvre la fenêtre en face de son visage.
Mais j'ignore la raison de ces ouvertures en face des visages.
