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. The plump figure and benign countenance suggest contentment, magnanimity and plenitude. A portion of the sales from this item goes to support Philippine orphans with food, clothes and school supplies. Handmade in the Philippines from natural materials. Slight variations in color, shape and size may be present.
