Plastic Monk

Welcome to the city of knock-offs. Here you can buy fake designer sunglasses for a fraction of the cost of real ones. You can even get cheap imitation plastic statues of Buddhist monks for your dashboard. Never mind that the religious icons don't seem as sacred and precious as the ones carved from wood or cast in metal. And the best part is that they're non-biodegradable and will last hundreds of years (that is, unless your statue melts in the sun first).
