Look At This Face! Who could possibly gaze at this happy mug and not burst into smiles, or even laugh out loud? Plus, eye-catching shades of Malachite green will bewitch you in this single piece of beautifully-carved African Malachite. Add to that the healing power of laughter, and voila'! An irresistibly cheerful personality that exudes good health and positive vibes galore! Known in Chinese folklore as Hotei, this eccentric Zen Monk has been lovingly referred to as the Laughing Buddha - and I warn you - he's totally, irrepressibly contagious! Of course, when walking by any Hotei, it is a long-time tradition to give Hotei's voluminous mid-section a rub for good luck! As a decor piece, Hotei will charm all lookers. And as a conversation piece, well, you'd almost swear that he talks right back at you. An all-polished frontside, and partially polished-to-natural backside, results in a finished look that will display easily in a reclining pose, or upright in a stand. Make your day every day with a quick look at this laughing Buddha, and just watch all your stresses simply fade into the beyond! Stand included.
