Paper mache Hotei and cow

I finally finished my paper mache Hotei, One of the seven Gods of Happiness.

He is distinguished by his big belly, which is thought to indicate largeness of soul and an inward wealth of resources. He is an open minded optimist and always happy.

I also finished painting my cow.
