Thank you Lance,...I found the article very interesting. So glad you shared it! :cheer:

No need to apologise for *not being with it*. I spend much of my time in that state! ;)

I picked up a couple more mudmen styles(unglazed) and a laughing Budda to add to my collection. :cheer:

This first one is a fisherman seated on the ground with his hat, fishing pole with fish and woven fishing satchel. He measures 1-1/4 inches (3.2cm) tall from base to tip of hat.





Here are two wise elders deep in discussion. They measure 1-1/2 inches (3.8cm) high. Note the amazing detail and expression in the faces and hands; the clothing; and the book of writing between them with a paint brush to the left.


And finally, the laughing Budda. He measures 1-7/8 inches (4.8cm) high. He embodies all the symbols for good health, longevity, happiness, wealth and travel.


Guess what I discovered last weekend? My son-in-law's Mom has a fabulous collection of mudmen (most of them are glazed) ranging in size from 3 inches (7.5cm) tall to approximately 14 inches (35cm) tall. They are beautiful! :P [/color][/i]

:woohoo: OMG ..... I love the Budda.

I can't wait until my trees get big enough to decorate with miniatures.
