Description

Guanyin, Bodhisattva of Compassion is a Mahayana Buddhist deity and one of the three Great Chinese Goddesses in China. She sits meditation (dhyana mudra) hands in the lap and feet crossed in padmasana, also called the lotus position,  with bare soles of the feet turned upward on a lotus throne atop a two-tiered footed stand. She reflects a regal image wearing heavily gilt lacquered robes and a 5-lobed crown. The drapery folds create a variety of surfaces effects that contrast with and highlight the concentration, quiet and peaceful stillness of the Bodhisattva. The sealed rear cavity shows this was consecrated by a Buddhist monk and was likely used on a home altar for devotion, offerings and prayer. This antique Chinese wood carving  is mounted on a modern, uniquely-crafted, frosted Acrylic base that will complement all decorative spaces.
