Laughing Buddha Statues of Nepal are perhaps one of the most loved artifacts. They are mostly seen in homes, offices, hotels, gardens, restaurants and shops.
The Laughing Buddha is a symbol of happiness, contentment, and prosperity. He is bald a rotund figure with a warm smiling face. He is clothed in robes, and his protruding tummy symbolizes abundance and mirth. He is also believed to be the future Buddha or Maitreya Buddha .
