For the construction of the Buddha from the trash left not one ton of recycled materials, mainly metals and plastics. Despite all the unusual ideas, creativity Althamer not approved by the authorities of new York.

So, a few days ago, the municipal government of the city of new York gave a decree to the police to cordon off the territory of the complex "Queen Mother of Reality" and restricted the entrance.
