The standing Kwan Yin figure holding a water container is a traditional form which represents her spirit of charity, giving and relieving the thirst of her devotees.
The figure is a drip fountain. You fill the dragon mouth with water and turn the figure upside down to circulate the water to the head of the figure.
Set the figure on a flat surface to get drips of water from her vase into the mouth of the dragon.
