Kamakura Buddha detail

【Kamakura, Japan】 Doesn't he seem to be crying?

 

Aged face but not bad for hundreds of years (Kamakura). The scars are due to the head of the giant statue having rolled several times either because of earthquakes or typhoons.

 

Amitabha Buddha statue at Kotoku-in Temple.
