Sculptures of these two naked Buddhas happily climbing houses were unveiled on Sunday in Jinan, Shandong province and have of course got netizens talking.
One of the Buddhas is seen scaling a house while the sculpture across the way is looking at him with folded hands.
Photos of the sculptures quickly circulated online, with several commenters saying that the depictions were disrespectful to the Buddha.
Last year, netizens were likewise outraged by a statue in Yunnan province showing two Buddhas having sex, calling it “crude and blasphemous”.
We just feel bad for the person whose bedroom is behind that window.
