For instance, one object slated for relocation was a six-foot tall stone statue of a Bodhisattva, or someone who is destined to become a Buddha. The statue weighs a ton. Literally. Yup — 2,000 pounds. It has been hanging around and smiling beatifically since it was carved in China in the late sixth or early seventh century, and Marciari-Alexander really, really didn't want the statue to be damaged or worse, smashed to bits, on her watch.
