Many Feng Shui web sites selling “supernatural” Buddha’s might front you to assume the opposite.
However if glancing at his figure evokes a perceive of mindfulness and compassion for all sentient beings, you hold tapped into the true necromancy of Buddha.

Many years ago I had a Buddhist Master come to my home to bless a new memorial outside.
He was completely distraught when he aphorism that it was on the bare ground.
The hermit with him took some nearby braches, lovingly broke them, and placed them below the statue.
