Fantastic hand-built fine porcelain statue of the hand of the Buddhist goddess, Kwan Yin. Kwan Yin is also spelled Quan Yin. This piece is gallery quality and is actually an incense burner. It has a beautiful aqua-hued Celadon glaze.
To use, place a stick of incense in the center of the lotus flower.
Lotus flower meaning:
Amazingly, the elegant blossoms and leaves of the lotus rise up out of murky, muddy waters. The lotus bloom presents an amazing contrast of purity and beauty as compared to the muddy, murky pond. This is why the lotus is associated with purity and beauty.
The lotus plant surfaces out of its pond over three days and then blooms on the third day from morning through mid-afternoon.
Quan Yin statue was made in the USA. It measures 7 inches high by 3.5 inches wide.
