KS Seated Buddha

A pictorial seal by Lu Kesi with a seated Buddha and the initials of the owner, KS, in the upper left and right corners.

Carved into the top of this stone (the knob) is a standing “Budai”—the laughing Buddha—carrying his bag. The stone was supplied by the owner, who had me grind off the name previously carved into the bottom in order to re-use the stone for this seal.
