Blissful Buddha

Syd the laughing monk gives you two thumbs up, a joyous smile, and overall good vibes. This miniature statue comes in a myriad of glossy colors with different meanings. For example, indigo stands for intuition while the more discreet ebony represents protection and elegance. Maker Ellen Atkins was in a transitional stage of life and found a fun way to cope. She would dress up a laughing monk statue on her desk with affirmations and quotes. It was a simple gesture that brought her great joy. Now Syd brings color and amusement to other people. Keep this little guy nestled between books on a shelf, holding your rings with his little arms, spreading good vibes in the kitchen, or hanging out on a friend’s desk. Regardless of where you place him, you’ll find him thumbs-up and mid-chuckle.

    I read the color chart and Rockin Raspberry is the one I really want, yet it is not an ordering option. How can I get a Rockin Raspberry?
