Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue
Really love this statue
I bought this to put out in my garden once spring arrived. It stood in my family room while I got the space ready. But my husband wants to keep it there and not put it outside! My young niece loves the tradition and rubs him every time she comes over. So now I am looking for something else to put outside!

One of Our Favorite Toscano Pieces
We love this laughing Buddha! His joyful expression is sure to brighten anyone's day! He has been in our meditation garden for several years. Although we bring him inside during our very harsh winters, he has held up well. The details on this sculture are amazing, and he truly does look like stone.

Cute Little Chap!
I have always "felt good" while looking at Hotei Buddhas and had to have one for our new patio room. Ordered this little guy and am very pleased with the quality and appearance of the statue. Since I've only had him for a short period of time I can't speak to the maintenance. But, all in all, a great product for the price -- well-packaged and received on time.
Looking forward to rubbing his belly from time to time.

Happy Buddha Brings Good Fortune
Buddha means "One Who is Awakened." The Jolly Buddha, or Hotei, contains many symbols. The bald head represents "wisdom", the big belly "good luck", the long ears "long life" and he holds gold over his head for "prosperity." He adorns my front porch beautifully, and I like to think he is bestowing all these qualities on all who enter my home. He holds up well in all weather and I hope he continues to do so for many more years.

This product will be a welcome addition to our serentity garden pondside.
Can't help but smile when you see this jolly guy! Shipped safely in a timely manner . I only wish there was a Canadian distributor. Shipping costs due to the weight and customs were expensive but worth every penny. Can't wait for spring to place him in the garden but for now he looks great beside the Christmas tree!

This beautiful statue makes me feel as happy inside as the little Buddha's smile appears on the outside. He makes a very cheerful and welcome addition to our garden.

Not for southeastern Arizona desert sand storms
I bought the previous incarnation of this statue years ago when living in northern California. The guarantee stated it could handle ANY climate/weather. NOT SO. Here in southeastern Arizona we have terrible wind storms and my Hotei was damaged - "sand blasted" if you will. But, I still love him and keep him near the front door. SO, keep him away from direct exposure to sand storms and I'm sure he'll be fine.
