The head statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, carved during Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577 AD), originally belonging to Youju Temple in Hebei province was stolen in 1996.

Abbot Hsing Yun, one of Taiwan's most influential monks, received the statue as a gift from his follower in 2014, which was later confirmed to be the lost statue from Youju Temple.
