I purchased 3 of the Monks in different colors for different people and each was a big hit with my loved ones. I took each one out of the package before I wrapped them and found myself smiling. They have that blissful look and a familiar feel. I'm very happy with this purchase.More > < Less

The Grommet has such unique offerings. I've never seen this item anywhere else. I have my inspirational monk on my desk at work. Anytime I start to feel a little stressed, which is more often than not, I look at him and smile and feel grounded again. Thank you!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.
