The Laughing Buddha, whose Chinese name is Pu Tai, Sanskrit Maitreya (Future Buddha), and he is lovingly called The Cloth Sack Buddha "Hotei" in Japanese. Laughing Buddha is perhaps the most recognized Buddhist icon in the world. Zen paintings often pictured the joyous Buddha as an eccentric wanderer with an empty sack, a treasures bag capable of producing jewels...or children, which is considered as true wealth by the Chinese and Japanese. Hence, this bronze Laughing Buddha with Yu-I (As-You-Wish) scepter in hand is believed to grant wishes to the poor and needy at will, and ironically he is also a protector of children unconcerned with material wealth.
