Scratchin' my ear

So this guy is the "Scratched Ear Lohan". I found him sitting outside the temple next to the parking lot of the Buddhist Temple in Richmond. He is one of the eighteen "Lohans" of Buddhism. Lohans act as protectors of temples.

He's scratching his ear because during his life he taught about the importance of having purity of hearing in order to find peace and quiet.

I wonder if he could help my kids listen better?
