Hotei Buddha Garden Statue

*Pictured in our Rust & Bronze/Gold Finishes

The Hotei Buddha is found in both Japanese(Hotei) and Chinese(Budai) cultures. The Hotei represents a jolly, plump Buddhist monk that lived in the town of Fenghu during the later Ling Dynasty of China (907-923 C.E.). He is said to have traveled the countryside giving candy to children from his endless supply found in the nap sack he carried over his shoulder. He represents prosperity and wealth and is well known for his generosity and good nature. He is the patron of the poor, the weak and the children. He was well loved and the news of his death spread rapidly throughout Asia. Statues were made of this famous monk and placed in gardens as well as the homes and businesses of the people in the hopes of bringing good fortune. It is also said that after his death people referred to him as a reincarnation of the Maitreya Bodhisattva (the Future Buddha) because of his ability to predict the weather. He is also often referred to as the laughing Buddha.

Great Works of Art
I am a design photographer. I do indoor and outdoor photos for many clients. I found Big Happy Buddha several years ago and have been absolutely pleased with their Buddha Statues, as have my clients. This Buddha is one of my particular favorites. It is cheery and beautiful at the same time. It really seems to just pull everything together. The statues are a beautiful pieces to add to any room and photograph amazingly!!
