Laughing Buddha sitting on Money Turtle Statue, H120 x W120 x D95mm
The laughing Buddha travelling on the great dragon headed tortoise. This statue holds powerful meaning in every aspect of its design. From the strong wealth depicted in the chosen colour green/jade, the Buddha holding the ingots and the tortoise sitting on a bed of I ching coins and ingots, to the symbolism of the Buddha representing abundance and happiness while being supported by the moving mythical dragon headed tortoise/turtle - a symbol of success and leadership (dragon head) with the body of the turtle signifying health and longevity for future generations. The Buddha also balances the Ruyi (sceptre) with his right hand – a token of direction for the wishes of the beholder, while tucked away behind his left hand sits the wu lu (or calabash or gourd) symbol which also enhances the importance of maintaining good health for wealth and abundance to flourish.
Like most of our products, this statue has also been part of our blessing ritual of which Anjian sends peace and happiness to the beholder
