I have a figure of a Laughing Buddha witting wrapped in a robe with a sack by his side. I have looked through diferent interpretations of the different Laughing Buddha poses but have not been able to find one that matches this one, they all seem to have more items than just the bag by his side. I would like to know what this figure of Buddha represents.

Answer

Are you sure it’s Buddha?

Sounds more like a depiction of Confucius in his later years. He wandered the countryside with nothing more than a bag of trash he collected along the way. His joy was found in giving the trash as gifts to children, amazed at how they were so grateful, and the creations they could make of it.

Just a story I heard. I don’t know what your Buddha represents.
