Buddhist Statue

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A zoning board has approved a Tulsa temple's plans to construct a 49-foot-tall granite statue of the Buddhist goddess Quan Am.

The approval is subject to the Federal Aviation Administration giving a green light to the project, which would be 1½ miles from Harvey Young Airport.

Temple member Xuan Pham told board members that the temple's neighbors support construction of the statue.

The statue would stand on an 8-foot foundation, bringing its overall size to 57 feet, or about 3 feet shorter than the landmark praying hands statue at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa.
