I love her work! What a cool little santa sculpture!

Zen and Santa? That sounds like an oxymoron to me. Why not have Buddha dressed like Santa Clause while we're at it.

This one caught me by surprise. I love it!

Looks like homeless man praying

I like Zen, spirituality, meditation, and I like Santa - just not together

Boo to skinny Santas!


I agree. This does not embody the spirit of Christmas for me. Fasting maybe. Yuletide, no. Sorry Mary Wells!

Vote: Thumbs down!

Zen ideals of simplicity and tranquility? This can best be achieved with less clutter in our lives! This is sweet, but where would you put it? Simplify.....

Vote: Thumbs down!

It doesn't look poorly made but I do not think mixing Santa with meditation works. Prefer they were separate.


Buddha and Santa? Ok, well, if you insist. The figurine does not seem to be well made, and the roughness of the texture bugs me.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not what one thinks of when you think of Santa - just my opinion.

I think this Ssnta looks a bit creepy. He looks like he's huffing paint, not meditating. :(
