Suitably ST I trust, these shrink wrapped plastic Buddhas come in all shapes and sizes. This one is in the 'Giving Blessing' pose.
Get one today:)
wrapping the buddas reminds me of those 1950s photographs where families covered their sofas in plastic. well whatever.
its not going to stop me from rubbing the buddas belly. but i bet the shopkeepes watch their customers like hawks. i probably wouldn't do business with a shop like this...

It reminds me of a wrapped image I did a while back. Link from my name.
