Budai – Happy God

I am a stout little fellow of Peking glass in a striking imperial yellow color. Although small in stature, 3.2” tall and 3” wide, I really do make an impression. I understand that possessing my qualities makes me highly collectible and rare.

I started my journey in China in the late 18th Century and had the good fortune of being discovered by our museum’s founder, Mary Hulton Phillips, in 1978. I resided with her in her home until I found my permanent place here in the Side Gallery of The Maridon Museum.
