|DESCRIPTION: A beautiful and fine antique ivory carving of Guanyin (Kwan Yin), the Chinese deity of compassion and mercy. Standing on a wood base, she holds a vase in her left hand from which comes soothing, healing waters. Her right hand holds a mala, beads used to aid in prayer and the recitation of mantras. Her finely carved, downward gazing face radiates serenity, and her long darkened hair is knotted and falls gracefully over her shoulders. This sensitive carving is in excellent condition with no chips or repairs. PROVENANCE: From the Collection of G. Jules Marder, past president of the Oriental Art Club of Chicago. DIMENSIONS: 10 ¼” high (26 cm) without base.|
