This is just too cool.

"Afghanistan's famous Bamiyan Buddhas are due to be recreated by multicoloured laser images projected onto the cliffs where they once stood."

California-based artist, Yamagata who's doing the project is careful to note that to him it's just a "fine art project" and "not political."

Fair enough, but I hope he has a heart generous enough to allow the Afghans to continue displaying his work of art for cultural morale and tourism (assuming it's not cost prohibitive for both the artist or the Afghan people.) What a wonderful thing.
