The image of the Laughing Buddha is based on a wandering Chinese monk, Budai (Hotei, in Japanese) who lived centuries ago and is believed to be Maitreya, or the Buddha to come. His plump figure and benign countenance suggest contentment, magnanimity and plenitude.
Handmade. Minor variations and organic defects may be present which further enhance the individual artistic character.
