Buddha Gnomes

Under the blue circle is an expression of rapturous deep thought.

“In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order, but the phoenix can fly only when it's feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, As endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moistures of the Earth,and the powers of the Sun and the Moon all worked upon a certain rock - old as creation, and it magically became fertile... Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey... The nature of Monkey was irrepressible! (Monkey - Great Sage, Equal of Heaven)

Apparently in German folklore it's traditional to have a mini animal statue inside a gnome. (Come to this blog, learn something new!)

But it would seem there is a market for meditating garden gnomes (aka Oms) already Yellow!
