Seated Buddha with “KS”

Pictorial chop with a seated Buddha and the initials of the owner, KS, in the upper left and right corners. The stone has a standing “Budai” Buddha—the laughing Buddha—carrying his bag carved into the top. The stone was supplied by the owner, who had me grind off the name already carved into the bottom in order to re-use the stone.
