    Some people present him as a laughing Buddha. What a mistake! Buddha, if he surely laughed and even smiled, was a serious ascetic whose physique betrayed the sobriety of life. Nothing to do with this opulent and joyful character that we present here. Budai is an essential character of the Asian popular tradition. Divinity associated with happiness, prosperity and generosity, he changes his name according to the religious currents which adopt him. The Buddhist school even considers him as a mahāyāna, an incarnation of Maitreya, future Buddha.

    Of Chinese origin, this legendary character would have lived in the 10th century. He is always depicted as corpulent, holding a budai cloth bag that gives him his name. On our ceramic, the bag is held in the left hand. Budai had the reputation of repairing broken toys, which is why he is regularly accompanied by children.
