This is an imperfect large Kuan Yin (Quan Yin, Guan Yin),statue from Bali. There's a small crack in front. She's missing her small finger on her right hand too. And she's leaning slightly to her left. However, this Bali wood statue radiates so much peace and grace, the imperfections seem secondary.
Carved buddhas from Bali hit the scene over 10 years ago and we're glad they did. This one is a beautiful Kuan Yin with intricate detail. Kuan Yin’s right hand is in a teaching mudra. Her left hand is holding a vase.
For those on the path of compassion, this ‘Teaching Mudra Kuan Yin’ is the perfect symbol. The goddess of mercy understands our challenges in life. She pours out healing grace with the vase.
