One of the 18th Arhats  – followers of the Buddha – who has attained nirvana and has  advanced along the the path of enlightenment.


Introducing Culapanthaka – the Doorman.  He was one of Buddha’s favorite disciples.  He would go out alms-begging, banging on doors with his husky and powerful hands.  Unfortunately – according to legend – he brought down a old and rotten door…. very much to the surprise of the owner.  Buddha gave him a tin staff and instructed him to tap this staff on the door…. not to beat it down with his fists.  Probably was able to get a bunch more alms using this effort.


In porcelain and with much detail.
