@givethemhell: I agree. But nice anyway. Thank you, Eva.
Looking again, I have just realized that I have got exactly the same reclining Buddha statue as the one in the front row, only a bigger size. Someone brought it to me as a souvenir from Bangkok.

Très symbolique de ce beau pays : des bouddhas à profusion, des dragons et des éléphants et de l'or (enfin presque....)

Nice photo Michael. A good trip eh??
15 May 2008 5:42am
Very special photo! It's weird, but the fat figures and the slim and smart-looking figures differ so much, and yet in Holland they both are called "buddha figures". Buddha couldn't be that fat because of his sober lifestyle, and I have read somewhere that the fat ones are in fact Chinese gods of Luck and Prosperity, not buddhas. But the misunderstanding among the people remains.

@Illuci: Thank you, Erik. Your added information was interesting.
This must be a very interesting shop! No need to buy, just have a good look around! I like the two overweight men, laughing so heartily! In Japan they are part of the team of the "Seven Gods of Fortune".

@Japanalia: A great comment, Gabriela. Thank you.
