the Japanese Bodhisattva of Mercy and Compassion, her right hand is holding the
celestial scarf swirling around her figure, and left hand upraised to hold a vase
of nectar, she wears
a hair clip over a high bun in concentric patterns, with
a flame-like aureole framing her youthful features, in a courtly countenance she
stands breezily, and
arching lightly toward her back; her
robes is densely textured, suggesting the flow of raindrops falling and covering
her feet. The carving is poising a tinge of contemporary aesthetics in a classically
proportioned figure. It is well preserved and cherished for use in home decor
or spiritual practice.
