This is mini but cute, I gave to a girlfriend that is learning to meditate and she loved it. It now has a special place in her meditation room.


Cute but not worth the $$

I bought this to put in my mom's stocking. It wasn't as big a hit as I thought he would be. Its different, happy and a great original gift. In my opinion it is too expensive

The Suburban Monk Story

How can you not smile at Syd?

Blissful Buddha

Syd the laughing monk gives you two thumbs up, a joyous smile, and overall good vibes.

This miniature statue comes in a myriad of glossy colors with different meanings. For example, indigo stands for intuition while the more discreet ebony represents protection and elegance.

Maker Ellen Atkins was in a transitional stage of life and found a fun way to cope. She would dress up a laughing monk statue on her desk with affirmations and quotes. It was a simple gesture that brought her great joy. Now Syd brings color and amusement to other people.

Keep this little guy nestled between books on a
shelf, holding your rings with his little arms, spreading good vibes in the kitchen, or hanging out on a friend’s desk. Regardless of where you place him, you’ll find him thumbs-up and mid-chuckle. Read More Read Less
