I think their hearts are in the right place. From an aesthetic point of view the head of the statue could use some beautification. It’s unnaturally bigger than the body. And, quite frankly, it’s not aesthetically pleasing IMO.

The property of the cessation of feeling & perception is to be reached as a cessation attainment."[3]

It’s butt ugly.
