    The story of the 'Travelling Buddha'

    This is Hotei, the buddha of today. 'Hotei' means 'cotton sack'. This sack, the one 'that never empties' is full of toys for the children, made by Hotei in his mountain home; also rice plants, signifying wealth. The leaf he holds is the leaf of the tea plant to symbolise wake-fullness, given by Bodhidharma when he tore off his eye lids so as to remain awake. The eye lids are said to have grown into the tea plant. Obviously these are individual works of art, so each one will vary from the photos shown.

    Our beautiful Buddha carvings are hand carved for us by skilled members of a workers co-operative in Sukawati, Bali. The Buddhas are carved from The Indian Rain Tree, known locally as 'Suar' wood, which is not indigenous to the region, but was originally introduced by the Dutch, and is plantation grown. 'Suar' wood has been extensively used for larger carvings, and some furniture production, due to its strength and crossed grain.
