    Meaning: https://www.buddhagroove.com/what-does-the-weeping-buddha-signify/

    "The statue of the weeping Buddha depicts Buddha in a bent over position, covering his face with his hands.

    There is a story about two warriors associated with the weeping Buddha. The warriors often faced each other during several battles. Both the warriors used masks as part of their costumes as a result of which they couldn’t see their opponent’s face. Following several such confrontations, the older warrior triumphed over the younger warrior. The younger warrior was killed. When the older warrior took off his mask, he realized that he had killed was his own lost son. Seeing this, the older warrior – who is none other than the weeping Buddha – began to cry.

    It is believed that the weeping Buddha takes away the grief and troubles of the world. In return, he bestows peace and provides strength to those who rub his back."

    Unfortunately not gold, but very well modeled.
    Thanks to Junkman60 for knowing what my little figure is called.

      And the moral of the story is..... be sure to display a proper ID when getting in a fight (Batman excluded).
