A Plan for the Reconstruction of the Great Buddhas of Bamyan
And The Revitalization of the Economy of the Bamyan Valley


The reconstruction of the Great Buddhas is not being considered at the moment because the material reconstructing of what used to be sand sculptures carved in the mountains would prove very difficult (the structure was considerably damaged during the dynamite explosions, it would be necessary to demolish what was left after the explosions)

However, during ARTISTS WITHOUT BORDERS activitities in the Bamyan valley, it was learnt that the local community (the villagers, the teachers, the local children), although devoted Muslims, desired the restoration of the Great Buddhas for a number of reasons:

- "The Great Buddhas were part of Bamyan".
- "They were the symbols of Bamyan".
- "They existed before Islam".
- "The Buddhas are not gods".
- "They were left by God as heritage for the Bamyan people".
- If reconstructed, "they would be an attraction encouraging many people to visit the area, benefiting Bamyans".
- Their reconstruction would undo the intolerant and destructive actions of the Talibans who also prohibited photography, television, music, etc., looted and destroyed the Kabul Museum, Kabul's National Art Gallery, etc.

THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE GREAT BUDDHAS OF BAMYAN COULD BE ACHIEVED NOT MATERIALLY BUT VIRTUALLY (HOLLOGRAPHICALLY)!


The 14th of every month (the day the Buddhas were destroyed) just before sunset, the images of the Buddhas would be projected with a laser beamed from the hill that is just in front of the caves across the valley. The now inexistent Buddhas ("Salsal" and "Shamama", as they have been nicknamed by the locals) would reappear again in the empty caves for one only minute. It would be a minute of silence in memory of those fallen during the war. People attending would be encouraged to stand in silence for one minute and pay their respects to the memory of thousands of Afghans who perished during the wars.

!) This long-term plan of reconstructing virtually the Great Buddhas would not be expensive for it would last only one symbolical minute (projection during the summer time only, when most tourists would visit, can also be considered).
!!) It wouldn't affect what remains of the standing Buddhas (that could be affected if a material reconstruction is attempted).
!!!) The laser beamed would be projected from the military post on the top of the hill so that the equipment could be protected.
!V) The projection of the Buddhas during one symbolical minute (actually it can be longer) would attract hundreds of tourists who would visit the picturesque Bamyan region that my also develop other tourist spots (like the amazing lapiz lazuli blue lakes of Band-e-Amir located not far away. See: http://www.aca.gq.nu/).

     

Rebuilding the Great Standing Buddhas would mean:

!) The accomplishment of the aspirations of the local Bamyan community.
!!) The long-term revitalization of the local economy of Bamyan by empowering its inhabitants to create their own wealth (at the moment they depend on humanitarian aid delivered by international NGOs and UN agencies).
!!!) The long-term diversification of the local economy that at the moment is solely agricultural.
!V) An invaluable contribution to bolster the economy of the whole of Afghanistan as foreign tourists and domestic travelers would visit Bamyan and other areas of Afghanistan.
V) The acceleration if the reconstruction and recovery of lost and looted heritage (which is one of the commitments of the new Afghan Interim Administration).
