|The Chinese goddess of mercy, Guanyin, is carved in relief riding on the back of a dragon whose feet are supported by clouds. Although the stone is irregularly cut around the edges, the carving appears to have been done as a stand-alone tablet rather than as part of a larger plaque. The Buddhist bodhisattva Guanyin has been a popular Chinese figure for centuries. This carving possibly was displayed outside as the face of the goddess is slightly weathered. The rest of the piece is in excellent condition. Height 13" (33 cm), width 9" (23 cm), depth 3 1/2" (9 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
