Once visitors land at the foot of the mountain, they are each given a HoloLens headset and begin the custom mixed reality experience, “The Story of the Cleveland Krishna”. Over twelve minutes, visitors are led through the winding tale of the sculpture’s history by the boy God Krishna himself (narrated by Cambodian voice actor, Soan “Emi” Pheary) as it is smashed, sold, abandoned, and finally put back together on the other side of the world. In the final scene, Krishna brings visitors back to the mountain with a vision of the sculpture reinstated in the temple — complete once more, and glowing from the candles that splash light over all the interior stone walls. Water magically pours down his facade in a devotional gesture. Then, quietly, the cave and the sculpture fade away, and there is only the empty room.
