Description This tall statue of Kwan Yin is holding a vase of nectar which she is pouring out.  The vase represents wisdom quenching the thirst of ignorance.   The nectar also represents the relieving of suffering since nectar is the food of hungry ghosts.  Her other hand is in the abhaya mudra, the gesture of discussion and debate which indicates communication and the explanation of the Dharma.  The tip of the thumb and index finger touch, this being the gesture of great compassion.

The base is a collection of lotus buds arranged all around her.  The sturdy base and the overall weight of the sculpture makes it perfect for the outdoors.  A beautiful representation of Kwan Yin the goddess of compassion!

About Kwan Yin:  Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin or Quan Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion, and she is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia.  Her name in Chinese roughly translates to  "The One who Hears the Cries of the World".  Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokitesvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion.  As a bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and she will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.
Care

Brass statues from Thailand do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

"You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup."

You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.  If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece.  You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

Thai brass's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The metal can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine.
