We talked about how to go about casting Buddha and other deity statues for the Great Stupa. Rinpoche suggested that we use bronze to create the four Buddha images in the main hall. Regarding the technique, we have to investigate further whether we want to use casting or carving. Casting would be more expensive but more beautiful. Apart from these four images, there will be 1,000 small Buddha images in this hall. Rinpoche said if making statuettes are not possible, we might consider making many thangkas depiciting 1,000 Buddhas and hang them on the wall.
