What is the meaning of our chubby Buddha statue that has his hands covering his eyes?

my wife recently brought home a small Buddha statue. It’s one of the happy / chubby variety however it has it’s hands over it’s eyes – does anyone know what this statue means or it’s purpose? Thanks!

I have one as well. It attracted me because I recognize that what we see (perceive) as reality is often deceptive. It is only through inner wisdom that we “see” truth.

Greed is a disease that brings shame on the greedy with conscience.
Unfortunately most of the greedy do not have conscience.
That is why our world is having economic collapse with Extreme capitalism threatening to bring down our world.

The See No Evil Buddha, known as ‘Mizaru’ in Japanese, is depicted with his hands over his eyes.
It is a buddha, but it is not the Buddha (Siddhartha).

It’s a warning from your wife about your fondness for Mac burgers.

Buddha was facing the wife and kids he abandoned, and he could not bear the sight.
