A magnificent gilt-bronze fingure of QuanYin standing on a lotus flower, with the right hand holding a nector- of-life bottle pointing downward. QuanYin is the most popular of the Bodhisattvas, the compassionate Avalokitesvara, Guan Shi Yin – she who looks down with compassion on the suffering of the world. 18th century, highly detailed and artistic. Peaceful and kind face. Head dress is removable. Fluttering celestial scarf adds movements to this rare collectiable piece.
