This antique fat and happy Buddha, with his huge smile, is hand carved out of one piece of wood with exquisite detail and beautiful wood finish.

Circling his neck is a hanging string of beads, known as pearls of wisdom. The necklace has a large amulet with three tassels. He holds a wealth ball in his left hand which attracts prosperity. He also is wearing a large hat, representing a long happy and healthy life.

The laughing Buddha was a famous monk who wandered in ancient China 1100 years ago and brought joy wherever he went. He is the Buddha of abundance and happiness. It is believed he will bring wealth and prosperity to home or business. Many claim he makes problems disappear.
