When José Berardo read about the Taliban’s destruction of Afghanistan’s enormous stone Buddhas in Bamiyan in 2001, he bought a massive range of Buddhist statues, and created the 35 ha Buddha Eden Gardens at Quinta dos Loridos near Bombarral. Quinta = winery. The Gardens also houses some ethnographic art, collected by José. Needless to say, José is a very wealthy man.
My next few posts will include some stuff I have seen in the Buddha Eden Gardens.
Except for straightening, I have made no changes in this picture.
