Guanyin Figure

Large vintage carved wooden figure of Guanyin, an East Asian bodhisattva, associated with compassion and more commonly referred to as the 'Goddess of Mercy'.  Guanyin is beloved by all Buddhist traditions in a non-denominational way, and many large temples are dedicated to her. She is revered in most of Asia, but this piece originates from China, as she is presented standing atop a Chinese dragon, holding a jug of pure water in her left hand. Beautifully hand painted, there are some minor losses to the figure, but this does not detract in any way from the decorative appeal of the piece.

Measures: 70cm tall x 40cm wide x 20cm deep
