Kuan Yin, originally known as Avalokiteswara ('the Lord who regards'), is a highly revered manifestation of the Buddha. She first appeared in Chinese scriptures around 400 A.D. Kuan Yin means 'one who hears the cries of the world' and personifies the compassion of the Buddha for the needy. She is usually represented as a young female deity but she has the power to assume whatever form necessary in order to carry out her vow to lead beings out of suffering.
In this dazzling statue, Kuan Yin is depicted in a pose of meditation while seated on an elegant dragon throne. The piece is finished in a striking bronze color and makes a wonderful addition to a personal sanctuary. The statue measures 22 inches high, 13 inches wide, and 10 inches deep.
This it handmade and hand finish. Variations in surface design, color and appearance are the natural results of its handcrafted construction.
