Statues of the Buddha are a common sight in places like Thailand, Vietnam, and Nepal. Visit those and other predominantly Buddhist countries and you will be hard-pressed not to visit temples with huge, gilded sculptures of the Buddha. As awe-inspiring as those statues are, most of the Buddha sculptures in those and other places come in much smaller proportions. These are the statues that people place in their homes, businesses, and gardens to be reminded of spiritual quests and needs.
Statues of the Buddha can also be seen in many gardens in Europe, the USA, and Canada. Those sculptures find a place in those backyards sometimes because the owners subscribe to the Buddhist faith but most place them in the garden either because they have an Asian-themed backyard or because resin garden statues of the Buddha seem to fit in with just about any garden. Like many garden angel statues, sculptures of the Buddha are often depicted with a face that exudes tranquility. With closed eyes and a peaceful, gentle smile, the Buddha appears to be enjoying the most peaceful of dreams and plain happiness. No matter what sort of decorating theme is followed, a statue of the Buddha helps turn it into a place of sanctuary and peaceful retreat.
