|This delicate carving of Guanyin, the revered Chinese goddess of mercy and compassion, was done in Burma in Burmese jade. Evidently carved for the ethnic Chinese community there, it is Chinese in style, with the goddess wearing her traditional headpiece and robe, holding a vase and standing on waves. She is carved in relief against a large curving dragon, which is fully visible in detail on the back side of the pendant. This jade piece is in excellent condition, and hangs from a fine gold chain. Dimensions of the pendant: height 2" (5 cm), width 1-1/4" (3 cm). Length of chain: 30" (76 cm).|
