Buddha has arrived

A fact, you probably didn’t know about South Granville: It’s currently the home to North America’s largest jade Buddha! The Uno Langmann Gallery is hosting the life-sized jade statue. Head over to the gallery and take a look at the impressive details and artistry.

The artist Lyle Sopel created the ‘Nephrite Jade Buddha on Bronze Lotus Throne’ over the course of three years out of a 2,000 pound British Columbia nephrite jade boulder, which was blessed by Buddhist monks.
