This Traveling Budai, notoriously known as the Laughing Buddha, makes a great addition to your home. This Budia encourages good fortune, health, and general well being. While commonly referred to as the 'Lucky Buddha', he is actually based on a Chinese Monk who was believed to be a reincarnation of Maitreya, who would one day become the next Buddha.
His bag represents abundance, as the bag is endless and never empties. It was commonly told that his bag contained food, treats for children, and even the sadness of the world... representing all things come into abundance.
This statue is made from brass, and is 5 inches tall and 8 inches across. A beautiful addition to your collection of home decor, and well being ~~
