Buddha: 350 Years old Yields Interesting Documentss

Documents inserted into the mouth of this 1662 Buddha shortly after it was carved are part of the Lotus Sutra, according to this interesting Washington Post story about the results of an X-ray and endoscopy of the statute. Click on the story and you can also see a fascinating "gallery" of pictures showing the Buddha, the documents, the x-rays, and there is even an image of the endoscopy.
