In many statues, Kuan Yin is portrayed holding a vase or pouring a vase. This represents the dew of compassion that she dispenses upon a world in need. You might see Kuan Yin on a lotus blossom or tortoise floating on waves. This represents her buddhic enlightenment. Sailors look upon Kuan Yin as their own personal savior. She is also called upon by women (and men) who are childless. Statues of her holding a baby are said to help fertility.
