IT’S A PENGUIN!
It’s interesting to note that penguins live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere. The only exception is the Galapagos species, which lives just north of the equator.
I created Baby Buddha after seeing an infant Adelie penguin. With its over abundance of baby fat, it appeared to be wearing a fleshy suit four sizes too big. I’d been pondering what to do with a green piece of Norwegian steatite. But after seeing a pitifully cute infant for the first time I knew exactly what the rock was holding for me.
