I always wanted a Japanese Geisha, stone figure for around the pond....So when I saw this she was too good to pass by.....I have moved the Hotei to another part of the garden and placed her around the pond in his place

Hotei is known in the West as the Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha. ... The god of contentment and happiness, guardian of children, and patron of bartenders........I'm liking the Bartender aspect hahahaha
rubbing his belly brings wealth, good luck, and prosperity they say.....I'm still waiting hahahahaha

Thank you for having me....I'm always learning and what better way than to consult a forum of like minded people...but you also have to put something back in....I hope I'm achieving this

That's impressive! Are they able to get out again? We have a formal pond with straight sides and had to install a little ramp. We weren't sure if they'd be able to find it, so went out to check the following day... sure enough there was a frog sat on the ramp! It was almost like he was posing :D
