Belly Rubs and Tourist Wishes

10 x 10 Oil on Gessobord

In Asia, the belly is considered one's spiritual center. When one rubs the Buddha's belly, it is believed to bring luck and well being.  This Laughing Buddha is carved out of stone and sits in Singapore. He must have heard quite a lot of stories and might actually be laughing at the many strange wishes and requests people ask for.
