Seated Buddha Boxwood Ojime Bead
Hand-carved Ojime bead/pendant of a "Seated Buddha" aka the Japanese deity Hotei (布袋) one of the Seven Lucky Gods popular in Japan, who is associated with Zen Buddhism. He has various representations, this being the "Happy Buddha" with fan (but sans his bag of goodies). We must admit, it is all rather confusing at times.
24mm tall with a hole that runs from the top of his head downward.
