36 measurements of Tibetan Buddhism figures
The representation of the Buddhist figure is not fabricated out of thin air. The proportions, appearances, postures, decorations, etc. of the statutes or thangkas are strictly regulated and are included in the form of white paintings similar to those in the “figure of measurement”.
Obviously, the religious Gesar sculpture must follow the scale of the imagery measurement, because its creation comes from religion and tradition.

The Buddha’s statues are “three classics and one sparse”
The book was translated into Chinese by the Buddhism General Manager Buchabu in the 7th year of Qing Emperor Qianlong (1742). The scriptures stipulated the measurements of Sakyamuni Buddha, as well as the proportions of various parts of the body and organs.
The “Analysis of the Imagery” is divided into three parts.
“Drawing Measurements,” tells the theory of the gods and various secular figures.
“The Buddha says that the imagery is measured by the Shu”, also known as “The representation of the Buddha’s Body”, which is a commentary and detailed annotation of the Buddha’s illustrated Image.
