Wooden Laughing Buddha

This is a fantastic hand-carved figure of the laughing Buddha

The Budai, or laughing Buddha, is traditionally depicted as an obese, bald man wearing a robe and carrying prayer beads. He is shown as a poor man but a contented one, teaching us that you do not need to be rich to be happy!

The Budai figure appears throughout Chinese culture as a representation of contentment and abundance, it is said that rubbing his protruding belly will bring the bearer wealth, good luck, and prosperity.

Size: Approx. 14cm high

Material: Raintree wood

Origin: Indonesia
