This is a Top Collection large statue of Guan Yin - Bodhisattva of compassion and mercy and protector of women. Highly respected and bears different versions of the name in Asian cultures such as Kwun Yum in Hong Kong and Quan Am in Vietnam. This Tang Dynasty depiction of Guan Yin in the Royal Ease pose with the crescent moon in the back was made popular from a folk legend where she saved an entire village from disaster. On the front and back of the moon are partial engravings of the Heart Sutra, which is the best known and most popular of Buddhist scriptures. Measuring at 8.5 inches tall and 7 inches wide, this regal representation of Guan Yin displays exquisite craftsmanship. The special production process of this piece, originating from Great Britain, uses actual bronze powder mixed in the cold cast resin to ensure a richer, more life-like presentation. The hand-painted accents further add to the depth and dimension of this piece. This process gives the product a high-quality antique look without sacrificing the details. Packed with molded Styrofoam in its own beautiful gift-box, it is ready as a present for any occasion and ideal present for enthusiasts of Eastern deities and East Asian cultures.
