Bodhisattva Quanyin in Lavender Jade
Lavender jade from Burma is carved into a figure of Quanyin, the Buddhist bodhisattva revered in China as the goddess of mercy. Quanyin stands on the head of a dragon that curves up and behind her, with the tail curving over her head to create a halo. The figure, shown here hanging on a chain as a pendant, is carved on both sides. The lavender hue of the jade is most pronounced across the bottom of the piece where the jade has the greatest depth for the carving of the dragon head with a ball in front of its mouth. At the top of the piece, the halo and head of the goddess are translucent. This late 20th century carving, in perfect condition, hangs from a fine silver chain. Height of the carving is 2" (5 cm). Length of the chain is 30" (76 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
