Restoration workers peel off loose gold foil as part of a restoration project for an 800-year-old Thousand-Hand Guanyin Buddhist statue on Mount Baoding in Chongqing municipality, March 18, 2014. The stone-carving statue, which takes up about 88 square metres on the mountain, dates back to the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). Officials said the restoration project started in April 18, 2011 and would likely finish in the first half of 2015, local media reported. (REUTERS/Stringer)
