Buddha and Ganesha, if I'm not mistaken.

The Dharmic religions do tend to have some very beautiful artistic sculptures
and deity/religious statues and images.


I have to say I like them to, I myself have half a dozen mini Buddha figurines and
several larger Buddha's.

That Ganesh is particularly beautiful.

I wouldn't sweat it, I have a huge Kali tattooed on my back.

The Hindus tend to think of their gods as being aspects of reality as opposed to sky fairies, if I"m not mistaken, so there's no shame in having either of those.

I'm partial to Kali myself, have a statuette of her, as well as some other stuff that could be construed as spiritual/religious. I like what the images represent, just not the god aspects of them.

Ganesh is the opener of the way, the originator of the word Om. I have a bell with him hanging on my door to keep me informed should my kids decide to go walking about in the middle of the night.

love the buddha, i have a few myself. the serene look on the face of a buddha statue tends to calm me, so i like to put them around the house.
