Looks like they are erecting around the bronze Kuan Yin statue some sort of a protective 'casing' against the elements.

I saw an "artist's impression" of the final thing. Kuan Yin will be surrounded by several "pillars" but there was no "casing". I think the scaffolding will be removed in due course.

But why do they need this? Is it to keep the kuan yin "in" or the worshippers "out"? I don't see how this enhances the original object. You may recall the original kek Loksi kuan yin had a section taken out of the body to reduce its height (for reasons I will not repeat here!) and so then appeared a bit "dumpy" and out of proportion. This one looked much better and so I wonder why the cage?
