Ask the rabbi Halacha Idols and Idolatry

Painting (2 dimensional art) of a Buddhha like face

Rabbi Ari ShvatAdar 18, 5781
Question
Received a gift of a 2 dimensional painting that looks like the face of a traditional Buddha like expression. It did not come form a Buddhist source, but a local art dealer in Nevada. Can I hang this on the wall as art?
Answer
Such pictures clearly have a pagan connotation, and accordingly are prohibited.
