If it is there, they keep it pretty well hidden. I saw nothing like that in St. Peter's Basilica, or in the galleries that lead to the Sistine Chapel, when I visited there about 15 years ago.

Is there a statue of Buddha in the Vatican? I'm debating with a Baptist, and one thing he shared with me was how a Catholic he talked to defended the statue being there. I did ask for a link, but I doubt he'll provide one. I tried googling it myself, but only came up with Cardinal so-and-so or Bishop such-and-such commenting on buddha being in this parish or that parish.
Does anyone know if there is a statue in the Vatican? Is it permanent or was it temporary? Either way, why?
