This large Buddha is an amazing specimen. Beautifully crafted and hand decorated there are many features that make it very special.
Next to the amazing joyful expression on his face, the decorated robe is beautifully draped and painted. The golden beads and jade green ball in his hand are examples of precious items that bring good luck and prosperity. At his side and a bit to the rear you can see his bag of plenty. Also, it is interesting that on his rear shoulder he has an image of a bat (a good luck image). Is that a tattoo? Did Buddha have tattoos?
It is in superb condition (with a goodly amount of dust and grime in the creases - some of which we were able to very carefully wash off after we took the photographs but enough remains to give definition). It measures approximately 9" x 8" x 7 1/2". A very chubby guy indeed! Also heavy (approx. 7-8 pounds, about 11-12 pounds when packed for shipping.
As shown, the base is hollowed out (thick walled) with no identifying hallmarks. This figure was hand-molded.
No chips, cracks, repairs, etc. Wonderful condition. Clearly he sat in one place for a very long time to gather all that 'schmootz' and dust. The good news is that means it was not needlessly handled which is why he remains in such great condition.
Note...even his belly button is smiling!
60 day layaway is available for this item.
