Laughing Buddha Mini Pewter Figurine

This Laughing Buddha mini figure is approximately .75 inches long x .75 inch wide and comes on a legend card and is made of pewter with an antique brass finish.

The Laughing Buddha is named Hotei (in Japanese) or Pu-Tai (in Chinese) is depicted as a stout, smiling or laughing bald man in robes with a largely exposed pot belly stomach, which symbolizes happiness, good luck and plenitude. He is known as the loving or friendly one, also referred to as the patron saint of restaurateurs, fortunetellers and bartenders. When one overeats or over drinks, friends jokingly attribute it to the Laughing Buddha's influence. His large protruding stomach and jolly smile have given him the common designation "Laughing Buddha."  

He is based on an eccentric Chinese Ch'an (Zen) monk who lived over 1,000 years ago and has become a significant part of Buddhist and Shinto culture. Because of this monk's benevolent nature, he came to be regarded as an incarnation of the bodhisattva who will be Maitreya (the Future Buddha).

Material
Brass Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of tones from dull, muted gold to bright and shiny gold. Used for everything from jewelry to home decor. It doesn't tarnish and some formulations are completely corrosion resistant. Thin layers of brass can be electroplated over other metals such as pewter.
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony and other metals. Copper and antimony act as hardeners and depending on the mixture of metals it can be in colors ranging from a grayish/silver to blue and can be colored black or other shades in a semi-dull finish. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic can resist tarnishing therefore it can retain its color and finish almost indefinitely or plated with gold, brass or silver.
