华严洞有开凿于北宋建隆元年(960)的华严洞和开凿于南宋嘉熙四年(1240)的大般若洞两大石窟,内有宋代造像159躯,历代碑刻题记24处。

华严洞石窟约700立方米,华严洞造像,以密宗为主,是释、道、儒同窟造像,题材达39种。其布局严谨,造型奇妙,动静结合,虚实得体,采光科学,殿堂似的石窟灿烂辉煌,气韵生动,在中国石窟造像中独树一帜,是北宋石刻艺术精品,是安岳石刻旅游区造像窟中最大的、保存较完好的洞窟。造像分布于左中右窟壁,中造高5.2米的“华严三圣”雕像,左右并排高4.1米的“十大菩萨”坐像,洞壁刻满“经变”故事图景。造像中的人物,个性鲜明,姿态优美,比例均匀,穿戴华丽,非常贴近生活和符合中国传统的审美情趣。特别是十大菩萨,古匠师们着力对面部的细腻刻画,充分表现出了众菩萨外表的俊俏和内心的慈善;线面结合的镌刻手法,使形体更加优美、楚楚动人。加之具有中国民族特色的镂空饰花宝冠,珠光宝气,粒粒可数的珠串璎珞,行云流水似的帔巾、衣褶,更加衬托出气质的高雅,身份的华贵。连环画式的“善财童子五十三参求法图”极具特色,所刻善财童子参拜的众多大德无一雷同。大德们所在环境中的楼台亭阁精巧玲珑,宝塔宫阙气势雄伟,花草树木生机盎然,云霞雾霭,袅袅舒卷。“剪云补衣”、“众妙香国”、“化城七宝”等众多求法场景跃然壁间。这些世俗化、民族化、地方化、生活化的说教作品,无不使人叹为观止。华严洞窟口两边所刻下山狮、准提佛母、摩利支天,面相凶恶,与慈悲的佛、菩萨及多变的善财童子五十三参,形成了鲜明的对比。这种独特的对比造像手法,使窟中造像全都活了起大般若洞来,显得十分生动,达到了极高的艺术造诣。

大般若洞

“大般若洞”高4.7米,宽、深各约5米,洞额刻有洞名。洞中正壁刻一佛二菩萨,两廊分三层,下层列十八罗汉,中间是廿四诸天,上层塑十童子,在正中佛像后壁,有两龛李耳和孔丘的浮雕塑像,属典型的三教合一的同窟造像。洞顶刻有一个直径为2.2米的“人丫”字,现该字尚无令人信服的注音和释义,“两个人字颠倒颠,认到了你就是活神仙”广为流传,成为千古之谜。

This panorama was taken in China, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
