Sanya Nanshan Kwan-yin Statue, 108M

Nanshan Kwan-yin Statue stands erecting on the South China Sea, as if Kwan-yin Bodhisattva is riding on waves to approach. The entire figure was made of white alloy through enforced forging. The surface of white alloy is spread with special material ¨C fluorin. The statue weights 2600 tons, resists maximum wind speed of 46m/second (or force 14 typhoon), with functions of anti-waves, typhoon resistance and anti-erosion. The statue rises 78 meters high, together with the pedestal, the height is 108 meters, is thus the highest of its kind in the world. If say Liberty Statue represents the western value of "freedom, peace and liberty", then the Nanshan Kwan-yin stands for oriental world¡¯s spirit of "peace, wisdom and mercy".
