Buddhas are the garden gnomes of today

Architects’ wives do not have buddhas in their gardens. They may have had them 20 years ago, before house and garden makeover programs on tv popularised them and saw them proliferate in gardens, courtyards and display homes around the world.  Architects’ wives know that they have become the modern equivalent of garden gnomes (but have not yet become kitsch enough to be a retro feature).
