And its actually NOT Buddha...not Sakyamuni at least, its Maitreya/Milefo 彌勒佛...though google image Maitreya, nothing hardly comes up, google image "fat buddha" and a ton come up.

Fate dude=not Sakyamuni Buddha...


Of course Milefo 彌勒佛 is Buddha.
佛 is Buddha in Chinese.

Just had plenty of students in my life ask me why Buddha is depicted as fat, "did he gain a bunch of weight after he abandoned the practice of starving himself?"
