Weird design choices

Today we received a christmas card in the mail. That prominently featured a photo of a buddha statue. It wasn't even a generic 'holidays'-card -- no, it specifically said "Have a nice christmas" ("Prettige Kerst"). But it had no imagery on it to refer to christmas at all, just an orchid design to complement the photo.

I wonder how the design process went. Imagine you're designing a christmas card. What on earth inspires you to select a buddha statue as the center-piece? And even weirder: who gave the final approval for that design?
