Antique Museum Quality Handcrafted Marble Guanyin. Kwan-yin. Hardwood Stand. China
Hand-carved marble head of Guanyin, the Buddhist bodhisattva associated with compassion. The expression is priceless and the headgear / crown with an engraved Buddha is a real bonus.
Acquired from a jeweler in Beverly Hills California who has had it since the 1970s, when he purchased it from a reputable antique dealer in Hebei.
The hardwood stand is elegant and most likely rosewood.
No chips or cracks in the marble head. There is a vein of black marble that appears on the back of the head . . . only adding to its beauty. The marble head is permanently attached to the hardwood base.
A true piece of elegance.
