With his extreme earlobes and rub-able belly, the Oriental Furniture 10 in. Sitting Hotei Happy Buddha Statue personifies good-natured kindness and abundance. This fine reproduction is known by different names in different countries; he's known variously as Hotei in Japan, Budai in China; and Happy Buddha in America. His round belly is full of good fortune and is flanked by his exceptionally detailed robe. A richly marbled faux woodgrain finish makes this heavyweight resin reproduction a wonder to behold. Glass fragments are inlaid into the robe by hand to create a rich, sumptuous texture, and the ornate golden hems are painted by hand.
