Vintage Ceramic Hotei Buddha - Laughing Buddha, Happy Buddha

$15.00

This vintage Hotei Buddha is made of ceramic and painted a funky 1970's metallic green! It was made for my dad for his collection of Hotei Buddhas. (I've kept many for my own collection, but need to free up space.) He is about 7.5" tall x 6" wide.

It is in pretty good shape with no cracks and just the occasional scuff here and there... but he is still happy and full of wisdom and good fortune!

Hotei serves duty as one of the Japanese Seven Gods of Good Fortune — the god of abundance and good health.

There’s a Zen story about Hotei. When asked “What’s the significance of Zen?” he put his sack down on the ground. When then asked “What’s the actualization of Zen?” he picked his sack back up and walked away. Clever Hotei! The very essence of Zen — letting go and dropping off whatever we’re holding onto.
