Often called the Laughing Buddha, our Happy Hotei is based on an eccentric Liang Dynasty monk. With his big belly, symbolizing happiness, luck and generosity, he's said to transform the sorrows of the world. Sculpted holding prayer beads and seated with a foot outward in a welcoming mudra pose, our wise buddha statue is cast in quality designer resin with a faux bronze finish.
