The Yu’an Mountain winds for over ten li with green forest, springs, and beautiful scenery, is the Buddhism divine spot of Kunming. It was first built during the Song and Yuan dynasties. The 500 painted clay arhats were sculpted by Li Guangxiu, a folk sculptor, and his six disciples during the Guangxu Period of the Qing Dynasty. Rather than based on traditional stereotypes, these arhat sculptures were created in a realistic and romantic way. They are of higher artistic value and regarded as “gems of Oriental sculptures”.
