This item is a Buddha standing on lotus leaves with a pearl in his hand. It is a rare form of buddha - usually you see the laughing buddha or the money bag buddha. This one is not seen very often and that is why I purchased it. It does have two lotus leaves that are chipped off and two other leaves with insignificant chips - however, these do detract from this figurine. Priced accordingly. Height l2 l/4 inches.
