Two bronze lotus petals (four existing today) are visible on the front of the pedestal, and a simple building stands on the right. There are large flat stones in front of the lotus petals to both the left and right. The fact that the petals are intact and the accompanying structure is different indicates that this photograph was taken later than the beginning of the Meiji Period when photograph #4464 was apparently taken. The Great Buddha is an object of worship and climbing upon it is prohibited today.
