Gold plated metal pin with colored enamel coating. Before it became a fashion accessory, this smiling Buddhist monk in a colorful robe stood on a table with a bouquet of roses in a still life by János Vaszary. Thanks to the Olovka Studio, the painting detail has been turned into another ingenious piece badge. According to the believers of Feng Shui, the laughing Buddha statue is good for your life. Let's hope it works just as well on a coat as in the home.

Vaszary Rediscovered, 15 September 2022 – 15 January 2023, Hungarian National Gallery

"Next to a bunch of colourful roses in a blue vase stands the small porcelain figure of a Buddhist monk (or bonze). Buddhism and other mystical teachings reached the European consciousness via philospohies preaching the decline of Western civilisation. The exotism of these Eastern teachings captivated even the salons of the bourgeois urbanities to the exotic, which prompted him to include Buddhist statues in his magnificent still lifes with flowers. Even he had a favorite and treasured Buddha figure, which was kept in the charming living room of the couple's villa in Tata." Exhibition label
