  1. The style of the shrines and their bases made me think, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down." My very peaceful, loving Buddhist friend would laugh at that so I hope that means Buddhists have a sense of humor.

  5. In Disney's Animal Kingdom they show statues decorated with bits of cloth too. Must be a Far East thing.
