The Sitting Buddha

Giant sitting atop a mountain in Hong Kong, only
reachable after climbing hundreds of steps, or sitting in
a flea shop in Hanoi amidst dusty clocks and rusty
coins, the image of Buddha brings serenity to any
street scape.
Personally I have always loved the Thai Buddhas with
the opulently flaking gold leaf, and the fat Buddha
with his rosy cheeks , always laughing in his peachy
robes and swathed in opulent gold.
