Blanc de Chine Guanyin II

Guanyin is known as the goddess of mercy in Buddism and associated with compassion. Some believe that when they die, they are placed by Guanyin in the heart of a lotus flower and sent to a pure land in the west. Some of the porcelain statues of her have a hand that is removable to store a secret wish or need. All include a depiction of the lotus and feature Guanyin wearing a necklace of imperial jewels, one of the stories believing she was the daughter of a king.

We think she's very pretty, and enjoy her meaning and meditative quality.
