A mammoth 73 metre (239.5 feet) tall, 600 tonne, pure copper Buddha statue will not be finished until 2018, despite work starting on the immense idol back in 2009, and is shown in footage released on Friday.
The massive monument stands atop the kilometre high Xiantang Mountain in China, with its base covering around 5000 square metres. In its entirety, the giant is around 22 storeys tall.
