After the signing of an agreement between Fo Guang Shan Foundation for Buddhist Culture & Education and China Cultural Relic Exchange Center, the statue head was donated to Chinese mainland. The donating ceremony was held in Fo Guang Shan of Taiwan in May of 2015.
The Buddha head was previously exhibited in the National Museum of China together with its body. The Hebei Museum will spend 15-20 days to restore the Buddha statue by combining the body with the head, and will be unveiled to the public at the end of April.
