Since images of Buddha were brought into China from the west, early Chinese Buddha images show very obvious Indian features. It was about the time of the Southern and Northern Dynasties that the form of Buddhist images in China began gradually to become Sinicized. The images began to be dressed in Chinese costume, and even their facial features became localized. Buddhism teaches people to do good works and display a merciful spirit in order to build up an infinite amount of virtue, so that after death they can be reborn to live in the Pure Land paradise of the West.
