For my monk loving friend


Great little birthday token gift




I purchased this for my daughter who is so into yoga and she absolutely loved this little guy. She wasn't looking forward to a mom's Easter gift at her age but, this just made her smile ear to ear and she found a place for it in her car.More > < Less


He's wonderful!!


I bought this little guy for myself and as a gift for a friend. He's wonderful! She and I both have him sitting on our desks so he can remind us to smile, and that we're doing great! He's well made, and lovely in colors. I will probably be purchasing a few more as gifts.More > < Less

About The Suburban Monk

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.
