The 30cm-tall paunchy figure on a pedestal wears a mandarinís bonnet and boots, and a costume with a colorful flowery pattern all over.

 

The fisherman has offered the statue to the islandís Hai Tang Pagoda, an ancient temple that houses quite a few centuries-old statues of the Buddha as well as a 100-kilogram bronze bell thatís been there since the pagoda was founded.

 

ďStanding on the mainland, which is 18 miles from Cu Lao Cham, you can hear the sound of the bell if the weather is calm,Ē said the templeís keeper, 68-year-old Le Mai.
