Split Personality

When I first discovered this little figure,  I thought (out loud as Lisa can attest) something like “what the hell is this!  It looks like the reaper raising his hands in victory.
victorious reaper

Alas, it was just Buddha “raisin’ the roof!!”

nope, just buddha raisin the roof

You have to admit – he looks pretty excited.

Kim says: what is the purpose of the hole where his belly button should be? Do you put a tea light in the back and have a beacon of light shining out his belly button? I kinda wish we could try that...

The hole is for a straw. These are used in your classier Benihana-type places to serve drinks in (think mai-tai). They often let you take them with you as a souvenir.

I'm not sure how I feel about drinking a mai-tai out of the belly of Buddha. But I am so glad that someone could explain this to me!
