Abstract (in English)

It is needless to say that the Buddha statue is respected religiously by Buddhist people. Under the such situation, how should and can Buddha statues in remains be conserved? What kind of interventional conservation treatments can be applied? Are they historical monuments or living religious objects? For the reference in considering this problem, a case study on the conservation of a giant Buddha statue in remains is introduced here
