Kwan yin statue
Material: To create this lovely sculpture, we have used high-quality resin. The statue is suitable for outdoor use and can survive all types of weather. Kwan Yin is seen in this stance with his chest exposed, in a very calm posture. Between his two legs, his leggings sag carelessly. His leg stance is unusual in that one is bent next to him in an elevated position, while the other hangs down and rests on a foundation. Kwan Yin’s long hair is pulled back into a bun on top of his head. He wears a glittering necklace and an earring.
Kwan yin statue, also known as Avalokiteshvara in the Buddhist Mahayana tradition, is a bodhisattva who embodies all Buddhas’ compassion. In mainstream Mahayana Buddhism, she is one of the most venerated bodhisattvas. Kwan Yin, also known as the Goddess of Compassion, is one of Asia’s most well-known goddesses. Her Chinese name approximately translates to “The One Who Hears the World’s Cries.” Many people think she is Avalokiteshvara, the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion, in female form. She has chosen to delay her entire, unequaled, flawless enlightenment for the sake of all creatures, and she will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.
Since all representations of Bodhisattva were masculine, it is widely assumed that Guan Yin originated as the Sanskrit Avalokitesvara, which is her male form.
Because a Bodhisattva, according to the Lotus Sutra, has the magical capacity to alter the body into whatever shape necessary to relieve suffering, later representations of Guan Yin may have both female and masculine characteristics. Gender is not an impediment to Enlightenment in Mahayana Buddhism, which includes Chinese Buddhism.
Kwan yin statue is frequently shown wearing a white flowing robe – white is the color of purity – and donning Indian/Chinese royalty jewelry. In the right hand is a water jar (which, like the Sacred Vase, is one of the Eight Buddhist Symbols of Good Fortune) containing pure water, the divine nectar of life, compassion, and wisdom, and in the left hand is a willow branch to sprinkle the divine nectar of life upon the devotees to bless them with physical and spiritual peace. The willow branch also represents the ability to bend (or adapt) without breaking. Willow has also been utilized in shamanic ceremonies and has therapeutic properties.
Guan Yin is often depicted either alone, standing atop a dragon, accompanied by a bird, flanked by two children, or flanked by two warriors.
