Would Hanging a Painting Of Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama) Go Against Halacha ?

I practice Buddhism, and as many Buddhists, define Buddhism not as a religion but as a philosophy, like Nihilism or Existentialism. The Buddha is not a G-d or prophet of sorts, just a teacher of this philosophy. We don’t worship the Buddha. Many Buddhists don’t believe in a G-d or they simply practice Buddhism alongside their religion.

So while I don’t view Buddha figures as an ‘idol’ would hanging a portrait of one still be considered a form of Idol worship, as I’m displaying it in such a way? The same goes for having figures of Buddha in my home. Is this technically not Kosher or..?
