        This is a Buddhist themed design.  Hotei, the Laughing Buddha, is a common image in Buddhism.  I suggest using this brown colored text as shown.

        Above you see a blank Hotei title graphic for you to insert a web page title on. If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the Buddhist wheel graphic divider and bullet designed for this page.  The buttons designed for this page also are linked for this site so that you can navigate through it.

        In China, Hotei is called Bu-Dai (Wade-Giles Pu-Tai) or Mi Le Fo and dubbed the Loving or Friendly One. 

        The Laughing Buddha derives from the time of the Liang Dynasty in China.  Hotei is theorized to have begun as a real Buddhist monk in China over 1,000 years ago.  He was considered a man of good and loving character.  It was said of Hotei's benevolent nature, that he was to be regarded as an incarnation of the bodhisattva soon to be Maitreya (the Future Buddha), but this claim was only allegorical and due to his large protruding stomach & smile, he was caricatured as the "Laughing Buddha."

        Hotei is also referred to as the patron saint of restaurateurs, fortunetellers and bartenders.  When one over eats and over drinks, jokingly friends attribute it to Hotei's influence.
