Laughing Buddha statues depict a stout, smiling or laughing bald man in robes with a largely exposed pot belly stomach, which symbolizes happiness, good luck, and plenitude. Some sculpture has small children at his feet. Another item that is usually seen with the Laughing Budda figure is a begging bowl to represent his Buddhist nature. All of these images display Hotei as a wandering monk who goes around and takes the sadness from people of this world.
According to legend, rubbing the Laughing Buddha's great belly brings forth wealth, good luck, and prosperity.
