Japanese Hotei, Buddha Statue
Item description - YO07010116
Budai, known as Hotei (布袋) in Japan, is a historical Chinese monk who is venerated as Maitreya Buddha in Buddhism. He later became apart of the Japanese Zen tradition. He is said to have lived around the 10th century in the Wuyue kingdom. His name literally means cloth sack, and refers to the bag that he is conventionally depicted as carrying as he wanders aimlessly.
His jolly nature, humorous personality, and eccentric lifestyle distinguish him from most Buddhist masters or figures. He is almost always shown smiling or laughing, hence his nickname the Laughing Buddha.
