Buddhaphobic

Good grief. This is in the Halloween store round the corner. It pees. Would anyone have dared to do the same thing to JC? Here in Texas?

it kind of looks like a baby, especially with the bib.

besides, if it isn't a baby, you may be referring to budai. in that case, it is somewhat buddhaphobia because in china he is usually associated with chán. however, in countries like viet nam, bố đại is typically a symbol of auspiciousness or granting a wish/prayer, that's if you put money in his hand(s). he holds a similar status in vietnam as phúc lộc thọ (fu lu shou).

cheers.
