At the other end of the chain of Chinese Laughing Buddhas in the Indian Buddha, holding a fish pole.
Is Buddha then, like Peter, a fisher of men? Do the Laughing Buddhas imply a sort of popularization of his image, a trend that's even more exemplified by the image of Jesus? What does Buddha catch with these increasingly vulgar icons?
Note how the shadows fall from the Buddha and look as if the image of an Angel is projected on the wall, perhaps further tying the Christian and Buddhist images together.
