Odd Things I saw – Buddha pear

If you are craving for fruit, why not try a Buddha pear? These unique pears were created by Gao Xianzhang, a Chinese farmer.

Gao spent 6 years perfecting the design of the Buddha mould for the pears. The facial details of the Buddha pear are intriguing. You can see eyes, nose and a mona lisa smile.

These pears cost around 10AUD each. These pears have been selling quickly in his village.

'People seem to think they are cute or lucky and will buy them as soon as they're off the tree,' Gao explained.

Looking at the Buddha pears gives me a peaceful and happy feeling.
