Buddha with coins

This weekend, when I was walking through town, I spotted this beautiful Buddha in a shop. I like the waved pattern of his clothes: the way it curves  around his belly and how it comes down to his feet (not visible). 

When I looked a little longer, I saw that somebody had put a few coins in his hands. That felt somehow a bit bizarre. The statue wasn't put there to collect coins, but thinking about it: Buddha lived on gifts, too.
