The statue of the Broken Buddha

Somewhere in the woods there is a statue of the broken Buddha.
It is believed that long time ago when the swarm of darkness was encroaching towards the core of the forest, Buddha happened to be travelling from nearby.
When he heard of the news he decided to stand between the forest and the darkness. He empowered a huge boulder which would act as a shield from the darkness. Over the years the wind carved this rock into the image of Buddha himself. The wind whistled while it did so and the echoed across the Forest.
Over the years there has been waves of darkness that have tried enter the woods but the statue of the Buddha has prevented it to do so. The left side of the statue has been broken, due to the repeated blows of the darkness.
Though the statue symbolizes good the broken side reminds of the things that lurk in the dark.
