A beautifully carved and detailed Quan Yin, goddess of compassion, standing in samapada asana on a double lotus base. Face, hands and feet are gilded with much of the gold remaining. The hair rises to a high chignon with side locks that trail in rippling tendrils down her shoulders. Her tall body is adorned with an intricate necklace and pendants, robes with scrolling foliate embroideries and celestial scarves that drape from the arms to form loops at the base on either side of the figure. The left hand is raised in a teaching gesture, the right is lowered in abaya mudra and may have held a bowl or water vase She looks downward with a gentle smile, searching for suffering beings whom she aids and comforts. There is extensive red paint remaining on the crown, outer robes and lotus base. The inner robe bears a greenish cast which is attributable to age. Upright and curvilinear, this work is a good example of Ming style, and has an appealing lyrical grace.
