Kuan Yin, originally known as Avalokiteswara ('the Lord who regards'), is a highly revered manifestation of the Buddha. She first appears 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 statue Kuan Yin is illustrated in a pose of meditation while seated on an elegant dragon throne. The statue measures 22 inches high, 13 inches wide, and 10 inches deep and weighs about 26 pounds. The piece's large size makes Kuan Yin a stunning presence for any space. She can be placed in your house sanctuary or add distinction to your entryway.
