Reality TV host Andy Cohen revealed Monday on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" that this Buddha statue is missing from the deck of his Hamptons house.
Cohen, who is cable network's senior vice president of production and programming, says he received it as a birthday gift three years ago from friends on Shelter Island.
"Since then, it has faithfully guarded my house in Sag Harbor, standing guard on the deck." Cohen tells Real LI.
Then last weekend, as he was sitting on the deck, he realized it was gone, he says.
"It could have been missing for the last 10 days," he says. "Who would go onto someone's property and steal a religious icon, even though it's not my religion, and what kind of karma is coming that person's way?"
Another question might be, Is there a serial statue thief on the East End? Last summer, an Aztec sculpture that was supposed to be auctioned off at convict Bernard Madoff's former home in Montauk went missing. Talk about karma.
