A Tokyo-based artist is re-creating a modern-day version of the famed 1,000 Kannon Bodhisattva statues in the Sanjusangendo Hall of Kyoto’s Rengehoin Temple — and you can be part of the process.

The artist, who goes by the name of Tetta, is holding an experiential workshop at Akibatamabi 21, an exhibition space for Tama Art University graduates. Anyone who comes can get a Buddha makeover.
