Jolly Hotei Buddha Statue
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.

Detail not visible in image in catalog. Great addition to my garden.
Speedy arrival, well packed. Have done business with Toscano in the past and will continue to do so. Products are more than fairly priced and always include more detail than visible in catalog images.
