Bodhisattva statue changes color

Mr. Huynh Huu Loc from Vinh Ngoc Commune in Nha Trang City possesses a bronze Quan The Am Bo Tat (Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva) statute which changes its color according to light.

According to him, the 52cm tall statue changes color not only in daylight but also electric light. It is black at night and electric light makes the color turn into grey, brown, yellow and others.

Mr. Loc hoped that cultural researchers, archaeologists, historians and authorized agencies will assess the statue’s value in order to better preserve and protect it.

The 9kg statue is left from his late brother, Mr. Loc added.
