As a prologue of this work piece, it is Afghanistan which is now under a civil war. There was a large Bamiyan Buddha on a crossroads of smile road. It was destroyed by Taliban in 2001. It was already a half-destroyed in the face by an invasion of Islam in the eighth century. We will start by attempting to revive in computer graphic based on images of heads of Buddha smiling kept in Kabul museum. At dawns of the winter solstice, several thousands people welcome the morning sun by saluting to the Buddha of the main shrine if you go up to the Stone Cave at Toham Mountain located in Gyeongju. This ritual of welcoming rising sun on the winter solstice is known to be originated from Shilla Period. Why did this kind of custom start? If we measure the direction of the Buddha with a compass in front of the Buddha of the main shrine at the Stone Cave, it shows an angle of 30degree in east south east. If we draw this direction on a map, it is connected to a underwater tomb of Great King, Munmu (To prevent invasion of Japanese army) and further it make a straight line with the sun-rising on the winter solstice. The Buddha at the main shrine is enclosed in sealed space now because a skylight was removed but mysterious smile of the Buddha of the main shrine was revived by the sunlight of the winter solstice shining through that skylight. We will revive it in computer graphics. Scholars call this peaceful smile, which is ancient and provides peace of minds, as an Archaic smile and how did this smile have arrived at the Stone Cave which is located at the end of the Orient? The most peaceful period in the history of Greek, which is one of origination places of human civilization, is called as the Archaic period. (From B.C. 7C to A.D. 5C) In numerous face sculptures of that period, which were discovered in A.D. 5C) In numerous face sculptures of that period, which were discovered in large quantity from underground of Acropolis shrine in Athens, it was found out that they wore smiles. The first Archaic smile was known in the sun God, Apollo statute and his twin sisters of Artemis Goddess statute but its original source can be traced back up to Egyptian period going beyond the civilization of Mycenae and Greta in the Mediterranean. Ancient Egyptians put masks on mummies and the smile of a mask called as the “Hwanjo/Smiling face” is the oldest feature among relics excavated until now. Unlike Egyptian civilization in which people were considered only as beings respecting God, sculptures of the Archaic smile represented by girl statutes of Kore and youth statutes of Kouros had wished that peace could last for a long long time by emphasizing inherent nature of hearts of peaceful and innocent people. Smiles containing these messages were vanished without leaving any trace through ancient time of Greek when wars had continued and moving into the period of Hellenism. The smiles were briefly reappeared in Etruria region in the central part of the Italian peninsular but as it moved into the period of Roman Empire, peaceful smiles during the Archaic period were completely disappeared. Where that smile had disappeared? In order to find that smile, we visit the smile road, which is about 25,000 km long by starting from Greek.
