Temples in Japan are strewn with effigies of Buddha, often lined in a orderly queue wearing a matching red hat and bib. I have featured this in a blog post once before (ok, maybe twice).
Perhaps a third Buddha is a bit excessive. I just find the vivid reds in combination with distressed and weather beaten stone hard to resist. It might not be the last…

I think the variety of getups on these Buddhas is hilarious! Keep them coming.

I see them all the time 🙂 Perhaps I should collect a big album of them and make a book called ‘Fashions of Buddha in Japan’ 🙂

That is actually a really good idea! I would buy it.

🙂 Maybe I will do it, I really do see them all the time!
