Buddha Pears

I have always been interested in Asian culture, and i really like happy buddha sculptures. I own a few small buddha figurines, but i was really excited when i found this....

these are pears that have been molded into the shape of Buddha. I looked up how they did it and while the pear is growing the mold is put on to the fruit and then the pear starts to grow into the shape of the mold and then the mold is removed and it keeps growing in the same shape. They have also done this with square watermelons and i saw a picture of a pumpkin molded with a face in it. But i have a connection with my fav little figurine....BUDDHA! :)
