Kwan Yin, known as the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, is the most celebrated Buddhist goddess. This Blanc de Chine Buddhist figurine features her tranquility and sacred feminine energy in her praying gesture. Kwan Yin is also spelled Quan Yin.
Kwan Yin is seated on a 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.
