In June 2002, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region received the donation of an original calligraphy featuring the "Prajna Paramita Hrdaya Sutra" (Heart Sutra)
from Professor Jao Tsung-I, an internationally renowned master with outstanding achievements in both academic research and art,
who wished to have the calligraphy transformed into an outdoor large-scale carving.
The masterpiece is reproduced in the form of a large-scale outdoor wood inscription
on a natural slope at the foot of Lantau Peak near Ngong Ping of Lantau Island.
The tranquillity of the natural environment of the site would enable visitors to
appreciate the masterpiece which combines art and philosophy.
The project was completed in May 2005.
