Kosho Sudo, right, a Buddhist sculpture master craftsman from Kyoto, Japan, and students carve a statue of Buddha earlier this week. The Buddha is made of pine from Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture, which was hit by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. About 5,000 people have contributed to the carving of the nearly nine-foot-tall, six-foot-deep statue. Photo by Buddhika Weerasinghe/Getty Images.
