Deities for sale include Buddha, Quanyin, Ganesh, Hanuman, Vishnu, Shiva images, plus many others. Most Buddhas for sale are antique and most are made of bronze. The site also has an extensive inventory of miniature antique bronze Buddha figures which can be found nowhere else. We also have Mongolian, Tibetan, and Nepalese Thangkas. Smiling means that we are ourselves, that we have sovereignty over ourselves, that we are not drowned in forgetfulness. This kind of smile can be seen on the faces of Buddhas and bodhisattvas. I would like to offer one short poem you can recite from time to time, while breathing and smiling: Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out, I smile.
