Kwan Yin Bodhisattva Of Mercy Balinese Hand Carved Wood Statue
Mahayana Guanyin Kwan Yin Goddess Statue Compassion Mercy Sculpture Bali "
Hand carved by Master Carver Wayan Mesin from a solid chunk of two toned gray hibiscus wood. It is a very dense & heavy wood with a tight grain with a slight greenish tinge. The back of the carving is left natural, showing the roughness of the wood, a nice contrast. This carving is very finely carved with an amazing amount and attention to detail. The wood is left the natural color and has been hand waxed to bring out the color and grain of this gorgeous wood.
As with all carvings made with natural wood you will see evidence of the natural origins of the material and also the tool marks used to carve this impressive carving. Please review photos I have included above.
Standing serenely upon an open lotus flower base or padma, Kwan Yin radiates serenity & compassion. One hand is formed into a mudra or blessing, the other she holds the vessel of sacred holy water of which she pouring from the vessel.
